Experience the ultimate Homemade Caesar Salad with fresh ingredients and bold flavors. This classic recipe is easy to make and perfect for any occasion.

Ingredients

Gather fresh romaine lettuce, Caesar dressing, Parmesan cheese, croutons, garlic, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, egg yolks, olive oil, and anchovy fillets.

Choosing Romaine Lettuce

Select crisp, vibrant romaine lettuce for the best texture. Fresh romaine provides the perfect base for a flavorful salad.

Preparing the Lettuce

Wash the romaine thoroughly and pat dry. Chop the leaves into bite-sized pieces and chill them until ready to assemble.

Making the Dressing

Combine garlic, anchovy fillets, egg yolks, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, and olive oil. Blend until smooth and creamy.

Using Anchovies

Anchovies add a rich, umami flavor to the dressing. For a milder taste, use anchovy paste instead of whole fillets.

Raw Egg Yolks

Traditional Caesar dressing uses raw egg yolks for richness. If preferred, use pasteurized egg yolks for safety.

Adding Lemon Juice

Fresh lemon juice brightens the dressing. Adjust the amount to suit your taste, balancing tanginess with the savory ingredients.
