Caesar Salad

READY IN: 35mins




  • In a blender, whiz up first 6 ingredients then slowly drizzle olive oil in while blender is still running to make a creamy emulsion.
  • Some people like to add an egg yolk at this time, but that is up to you.
  • Chill dressing in blender carafe for at least 20 minutes to 1 hour. Whiz up to mix again and taste and make any adjustments.
  • Assemble torn lettuce and coutons and bacon in very large bowl.
  • Then adding dressing a bit at a time and tossing until coated.
  • Present with a little more cheese and pepper if desired.
  • my secret touch: I cube and toast any left over bread like sourdough, pumpernickle, italian - about 1 inch cubes.
  • I put in the oven and toast on a cookie sheet.
  • After I fry my bacon bits,, I reserve a tablespoon of bacon drippings in the frypan and add another tablespoon or so of butter and a little seasoning salt.
  • I toss the toasted bread cubes in the yummy drippings, right in the same pan as the bacon was made in and let cool a bit before tossing on salad -- these are buttery and yummy.
  • This step can be made ahead. sinfull.
  • Your heart will thank you lol.
