Vegetarian Cesar Salad

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!

Ingredients for 4

  • 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)
  • lemon
  • 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:

Cook the egg for about 1 min 30 in boiling water and then cool it off under cold water to make it easier to peel.

Place this 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 chopped parmesan.

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!

  1. Recette testée ce midi que toute la famille a adopté ! Merci beaucoup pour ce partage franchement à refaire je n’achèterai plus de sauce César toute faite !

  2. juste une remarque, j’ai été regarder APRES avoir fait la recette les commentaires Marmiton et je trouve qu’ils reflètent bien toute la rigueur française dans la cuisine ! Il y a plusieurs commentaires insistant sur le fait que ce n’est pas une salade César car il n’y a pas d’anchois. Personnellement je n’avais pas non plus de câpres sous la main ce qui ne nous a pas empêchés de nous régaler avec des ingrédients simples mais associés de manière astucieuse ! encore MERCI !
