Caesar Salad

I’m going to call it – Caesar salad is an ache to make, calling for an inordinate quantity of pots and pans to be dirtied inside the name of just one salad.

Food processor for the dressing – and the mayo makes it all greasy and dirty which is so difficult to clean.

  • Baking tray for the croutons
  • Skillet for the bacon
  • Cutting board
  • Giant bowl to toss the salad – you’ve really gotta toss with abundance when using creamy dressing, can’t do it in the serving bowl
  • Serving bowl

All that for just One salad.

And yet, we do it. Because it’s so worth the taste and comfort which we get from this salad. And oh the creamy dressing is so worth the mess!

What goes in Caesar Salad

There’s all sorts of variations around, but the classic is made with:

  1. cos lettuce (aka romaine) – or iceberg will do in a pinch!
  2. crispy bacon
  3. croutons – garlic croutons, at that!
  4. Caesar Salad Dressing
  5. parmesan cheese, for finishing

With the rich dressing, I discovered that even a “simple” Caesar salad is filling enough as it’s far to have as a meal. but a common addition, which you frequently find on the menu of bistros, is chicken and egg. provides protein and makes it even greater fulfilling – so I’ve covered those are non-obligatory in the recipe below!
