Classic Caesar Salad


Basic salad:

• 1 bulk bag cos lettuce

• croutons - bought or see note for home-made

• parmesan shavings

optional extras:

• 2 avocados, cubed or scooped
• hard boiled eggs, quartered
• asparagus - cooked in a little water for a 1-1 1/2 minutes in the microwave till cooked but still crunchy and not mushy
• approx 250g smoked salmon or 4x grilled sliced chicken breasts


• 1/3 cup oil

• 1 clove garlic crushed

• 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard

• 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

• 1 egg

• 3 or more anchovy fillets

• 2 Tablespoons lemon juice

• 2 Tablespoons finely grated Parmesan

• Salt and Black Pepper

• 2 Tablespoons Mayonnaise

1) Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse till smooth.
2) Can be made up to 3 days in advance in a sealed container but kept in the fridge.


1) Place the cos lettuce down first onto a shallow long platter.
2) Then add the croutons (not all) and parmesan shavings.
3) Add the optional extras that you want.
4) Drizzle over the dressing and toss to serve.
5) Finally add a few extras croutons to decorate.

Home made croutons (makes 3 cups)

• 3 heaped cups cubed bread- any type! (and best a day or two old)

• 1/4 cup olive oil

• 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt


1) Preheat the oven to 190 deg C.
2) In a large bowl, combine the bread and garlic salt and drizzle over the olive oil
3) Stir well until bread is coated by all ingredients and olive oil is absorbed.
4) Spread bread cubes into an even layer on a baking tray. Don’t crowd the pan.
5) Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.
If the bread is stale and dry, it may brown faster (so keep watch it)

Note: Place into a ziplock back and freeze - take out when you need
