Caesar Salad (Diana Platas)
This salad is a go-to in our home. Everyone seems to love it. It has impressed the in-laws, more than satisfied the kids, provided a delicious dinner on many nights when it's too hot to cook or bake, and overall is a family favorite. We hope you enjoy it also. We've loved having you at PMC, Britt. Congratulations on this next, and very exciting, chapter in your life!
Optional: bacon, smoked salmon, or grilled chicken
1 head romaine lettuce
3 finely minced garlic cloves
pinch of salt
1tsp Worcestershire sauce (5mL)
3 drops (more or less) Tabasco sauce
2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice (30mL)
1/3 c olive oil (75mL)
2 tbsp red wine vinegar (30mL)
6 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese (90mL)
Wash and dry lettuce, break into bite-size pieces.
Place garlic in a large salad bowl. Use a spoon to mash the garlic (a wooden bowl works great for this). Sprinkle salt over the garlic. Mix in Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco.
Put egg in a measuring cup and pour hot *but not boiling* water over the top to cover. Wait one minute. Drain, separate the egg and add yolk only to the bowl.
Mix in lemon juice and olive oil. Gradually add vinegar.
Add Parmesan and mix thoroughly, then add lettuce. Toss and serve, topped with bacon, salmon, chicken and/or croutons.
