Caesar Salad

This makes just enough dressing for a medium sized head of lettuce. If you want any extra, or if you like your salad heavily dressed, double the recipe.

Adapted from Martha Stewart.


  • 1 small or medium head romaine lettuce, chopped or use quartered romaine hearts.
  • Shaved parmesan (grated works well too)
  • Croutons


  • 1/2 clove garlic
  • 2 anchovy filets or 1/4 teaspoon anchovy paste
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  • In the bottom of the salad bowl, mash together the salt, garlic and anchovy to form a paste. Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk together. If using anchovy paste, the dressing can be made in a mason jar with minced garlic.
  • Toss with croutons and shaved parmesan and top with freshly cracked black pepper.
