Crunchy, sweet, salty, creamy - caesar salad is so easy to throw together and is so delicious. I haven't been specific with quantities for lettuce, bread or bacon - this is flexible to your taste and how many people are going to enjoy it!
Here's how we put ours together:
Caesar cos leaves
1 cup mayo - we love best foods mayo
1 sm clove garlic, chopped or grated finely
1 Tbsp Olive oil
2 Tbsp lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tsp Mustard - we use Earthbound Honey's Honey Mustard
Bread to make croutons - we adore Gourmet Gannet's sourdough
Bacon - Salash Deli make amazing spec with no nitrates
Parmesan cheese - grated
To make croutons - cut bread into 1.5cm cubes. Rub through olive oil, salt and pepper. Toast in oven until a bit crunchy and lightly golden.
Grill or fry bacon until a bit crispy. Let cool, then dice into small 1cm pieces.
Make dressing by combining mayo, garlic, mustard and lemon juice, then season with salt and pepper to taste.
To assemble - brush or coat cos leaves with dressing. Lay leaves down in a single layer on a platter, scatter over croutons, bacon and then parmesan. For larger quantities, make another layer on top.
½ cup packed coarsely chopped coriander
Juice from 1 golden lime
½ cup sour cream
½ cup mayo
1 tbsp Earthbound Honey's apple cider honeygar
salt and pepper to taste
