Best Ceasar Dressing Ever!

I have to thank my husbands mother for this one!

It’s super easy and you can make double and triple the amount and store it in your fridge for future use or for lunch salads. If you double or triple use equal parts oil and cheese and you can leave all other ingredient amounts the same as the single.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Head Romaine Lettuce
  • 1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 4-5 Anchovies Fillets, smashed
  • 5 Garlic Cloves, peeled and pressed
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 Raw Egg
  • Salt
  • Pepper
Preparation
  • Cut off ends of Romaine and remove outer leaves. Rinse lettuce
  • Use Salad Shears to cut lettuce. Salad shears can be found HERE.
  • Put lettuce in a large bowl and cover w/ paper towels to soak up extra water.
  • In a jar with a tight lid or Tupperware container whisk all the remaining ingredients together.
  • Separate lettuce into salad bowels and drizzle with dressing

If making more than one batch of dressing at a time you do not need to increase the amount of ingredients in anything but the oil and cheese. Although I will usually use 1 extra lemon when I double the batch.

Do not shy away from the anchovies. I think they are nasty and foul in every way for every bodily sense, you can’t taste them. If a bit of them get clumped together in your salad bowl and eat around it. When you don’t use them there really is something missing in the dressing. If I don’t have enough anchovies or I have everything but anchovies and don’t feel like running out I will use a couple dashes of Worcestershire Sauce.

Dressing keeps well in the fridge but know that the oil will solidify. Do NOT microwave!!! When you start dinner take the dressing out of the fridge and leave on the counter until you need to use it. There should be enough time for the oil to come to room temperature again.

Yes the egg is raw. Your chances of becoming ill are like 1/1,000,000. Eggs are pasteurized. This does not mean you can let it sit out on your deck in the middle of July for 5 hrs and it won’t spoil but 30 min out of the fridge won’t harm anything.
