    I'mPat's Note:

    This is from Margaret Fultons revised 1968 cookbook (a Christmas present from the DD - my original is rather dog eared and stained) in which she states "This is the authentic recipe made for me by the Cardini family in Mexico, the creataors of the caesar salad. Particular care was taken to lay the tender, elongated cos leaves all in the one direction." Times are estimated.

    8. 8
      For the Dressing -.

      With the exception of the egg mix/whisk or put in a jar, seal and shake, all the ingredients together to make the dressing.
    10. 10
      Coddled egg -.
    11. 11
      Lower the egg into a small saucepan of simmering water and simmer for 1 minute, lift out with a slotted spoon.

      Add the croutons and break in the coddled egg and add the dressing and turn the salad gently, until the dressing coats the lettuce leaves evenly.
    14. 14
      Serve as soon as possible after dressing (better immediately) - keeps o'kay but not the best. (haven't done myself but from family members that have).

      A really great tasting Caeser that I loved at lunch today. Excellent dressing that made a, dare I say, better than restaurant salad for under 300 calories. Really, what's not to love? :D

      I really enjoyed this salad, nice and refreshing and not as heavy as the "Restaurant Style" Caesar Salad. I added a few capers, just because I had them out for another recipe I was making and I liked the extra tartness it gave this salad. Will make again and again. Thanks for sharing :)
