The main ingredients of the Caesar salad are: romaine lettuce, garlic vinaigrette, egg, and anchovies.

The salad's creation is attributed to an Italian restaurateur in Mexico - Cesare Cardini of Tijuana one holiday weekend in 1924. He supposedly ran short of supplies and concocted this salad from leftovers.

Ingredients

4 anchovy fillets, finely chopped 16 g
paper towels
1/3 cup olive oil 85 mL
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 egg yolks
2 tsp Dijon mustard 10 mL
2 tbsp wine vinegar 30 mL
1/4 tsp Tabasco sauce 1.25 mL
2 slices bacon, chopped 40 g
1 Romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces 550 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

Make the dressing:

  1. Drain the anchovy fillets, pat dry on a paper towel, then mince.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat one tablespoon of olive oil over moderately low heat. Add the crushed garlic. Cook 2-3 min until softened. Add the minced anchovies, stirring and mashing 1 min to form a paste. Set aside.
  3. Separate the egg yolks from the whites. Set aside the whites in a jar in the refrigerator or freezer for future use in another recipe.
  4. In a bowl, whisk together the yolks, mustard, vinegar, and Tabasco sauce. Add the remaining olive oil in a stream, whisking, until the dressing is emulsified. Add the garlic and anchovy paste. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

Dress the salad:

  1. In a nonstick pan, fry the chopped bacon until crisp. Set the bacon aside on a paper towel to absorb the excess fat.
  2. Wash the romaine lettuce, spin-dry. Reserve the outer leaves for another use. Tear the pale-green inner leaves into bite-size pieces.
  3. In a salad bowl, toss the romaine with the bacon bits, and the dressing until the salad is well combined. Serve.

Due to an egg allergy, I substituted 1 Tbsp ground flax seed whisked with 3 Tbsp Hot Water.. whisk for one minute until frothy like an egg, than let it sit for about 5 minutes. Due to a mustard allergy, I used Worcestershire sauce instead. I used Grimm's Gluten-Free, Lactose-Free Back Bacon.
