Caesar Salad

Easiest and most famous salad.  Can be done as side dish with anything or even as a snack.  You can add chicken, shrimp, anything you want as meat.  Usually chicken is the most asked addition to the salad, but plain is also delicious!

Caesar Salad


Around 10 cups of lettuce cut in slices
1/3 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese
Croutons(I did these homemade, but you can buy ready made ones)


1 cup mayonnaise
3 tbsp mustard
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 garlic clove - peeled
2 anchovies (you may need to add another one) [optional]
around 4 tbsp of olive oil
1/3 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese 


Mix in a bowl the lettuce, cheese. Set aside.

Blend all ingredients of the dressing and they are ready to be mixed with the salad - check if you need another anchovy - the taste should reach the perfect saltiness - adding too many anchovies can lead the sauce to taste like fish!.  Salt is not needed because anchovies are already salty. 

Add the croutons and mix slowly. 

PS: You can do this salad without the anchovies, but these add the secret flavor to the salad itself.
