Favorite Caesar Salad
I've never been a huge fan of Caesar salad until I started making my own dressing; now, I can't make this salad enough. It's particularly great for me because it requires minimal ingredients, so it keeps me from having a fridge full of veggies that are only going to go rotten before I can eat all of them.
Favorite Caesar Salad Dressing
Whisk together the following:
2 egg yolks
anchovy paste (I squeeze out paste to about an inch to inch and a half)
juice of one small lemon
zest of small lemon
3 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
Then, slowly stream in extra virgin olive oil (about 1/2 to 3/4 cup) while whisking to emulsify.
Finally, whisk in 1/4-1/2 cup grated Parmesan.
You'll never buy bottled dressing again!
