Easy Caesar Salad
2 heads of romaine lettuce,chopped
parmesan cheese(grated or peeled off the rind using a veggie peeler)
2 cloves of garlic
4 anchovy fillets(I used 1 tsp. ofanchovy paste)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. dijon mustard
1/3 c. extra-virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. mayonnaise(for creamier dressing,can be left out if desired)
Using a fork,mash the salt & garlic cloves (and anchovies,if using) into a paste.Place in a small bowl,and whisk in pepper,lemon juice,mustard,worcestershire sauce,and mayonnaise.Slowly,whisk in olive oil.
Foccaccia ,cut into cubes
salt & pepper to taste
Spread the bread cubes on a sheet pan,and drizzle with a little olive oil.Sprinkle with salt & pepper.Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.Croutons should be golden.These can be stored in an airtight
container for up to 2 days.
To assemble the salad,place the chopped romaine in a large bowl.Drizzle with the dressing,and add the croutons and parmesan.Toss and enjoy!
