Last year I discorvered one of the best recipes of Cesar Salad I have ever tasted on the French Cooking Site Marmiton.
I have made it quite regulary since, especially for picnics or summer lunches!
- 2 romaine lettuce hearts
- 25 g of chopped parmesan
- 4 slices of bread
- 2 tbsp of neutral oil
- For the seasoning:
- 1 egg
- 25 g grated parmesan
- 2 tsp capers
- 1/2 tsp of mustard
- touch of tabasco (optional)
- 1 garlic clove
- 150 ml neutral oil
- pepper, salt
Cut the bread into chunks and cook for 3 minutes in a bit of oil to make croutons. Let them dry off on a kitchen towel.
Tear the romaine lettuce into bite-sized pieces and place into a bowl. Add the croutons.
Prepare the seasoning:
Place the egg into a mixing bowl together with the grated parmesan, capers, mustard, tabasco, lemon and garlic and blitz it so that it becomes smoother. Then add the oil in a thin stream into the blender while mixing up a sort of mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper.
Toss the salad with this dressing and serve topped with the parmesan shavings.
Tip if you take this salad with you on a picnic, place the ingredients into different recipients. Salad, dressing, parmesan chunks and croutons. It will be perfectly fresh and a delightful meal on the go!
