Delish. Try It.

The ingredients may sound a tad too rich but once in a while, treat yourself!

Yummy Ceasar Salad

You will need:

(for 2-3 people)

  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp prepared mustard
  • 1/2 cup corn oil
  • 1 slice anchovy
  • 2 calamansi (lemon)
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • regular pepper
  • crushed peppercorns
  • 3 TBS or more Parmesan cheese
  • 3 large tsp bacon bits
  • 2 small salad bowls of lettuce
  • croutons
  1. Crush garlic.
  2. Add unbroken egg yolks - one at a time.
  3. mustard
  4. Blend oil slowly (should be done in only 1 direction all through out).
  5. crush anchovy
  6. mix other ingredients.
* Best if you use a wooden salad bowl when making the dressing.
* For the croutons, I just toss in 3 or 4 slices of whole wheat bread in the toaster and toast them for 2 minutes 2 times. Wait for it to harden and then cut into small squares.

I love ceasar salads! All kinds of salads really. Although I have not prepared the dressing from scratch like you did.

I buy it in gourmet shops :D It also adds a bit of a twist if you add some ripe squarred mangoes or apples.

You mentioned calamansi and I'm totally craving it right now! LOL!
