Caesar Salad

  • Cook bacon until slightly crisp, but not over cooked.  Cool and chop into small pieces.
  • Wash and rip romain lettuce into bite size pieces.
  • Some people add croutons, but since I don't like them, I don't add them!
  • Sprinkle with fresh grated parmasean cheese.
  • Toss with dressing.  Serve immediately.

Caesar Salad Dressing (adapted from the Joy of Cooking)

  • Peel 4 cloves of garlic and mash using a fork with 1/2 tsp salt
  • Whisk in:
    • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
    • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
    • salt and ground pepper to taste
    • a generous dollop of anchovy paste
  • Add in a slow and steady stream, while whisking constantly 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Whisk continuously until you have a thick emulsion.
