Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 5 min.
Caesar salad
Put into a blender goblet: 1 hard-boiled egg, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon white (spirit) vinegar, the juice of ½ lemon, 1 teaspoon Mustard, Tabasco to taste, 30 g Parmesan (Parmigiano Reggiano), ½ garlic clove, salt and pepper.

Stage 2 - 1 min.
Caesar salad
Blend until evenly mixed and that's your Casar dressing prepared. Check the seasoning then set aside.

Stage 3 - 15 min.
Caesar salad
Prepare the lettuce and shred 'en chiffonade'.

Stage 4 - 5 min.
Caesar salad
Cut 4 slices bread into small croutons. Remove the crust if you wish.

Stage 5 - 3 min.
Caesar salad
Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a frying pan and fry the croutons until golden brown.

Stage 6 - 2 min.
Caesar salad
Trim and chop the parsley then add to the lettuce.

Stage 7 - 3 min.
Caesar salad
Add the Caesar dressing and mix well.

Add the croutons and mix again briefly.

Stage 8 - 3 min.

Finish with a few shavings of Parmesan. Your Caesar salad is ready.
It is easy to adapt the Caesar dressing - with its many ingredients - to your own taste, so do try your own variations. It might not be the "real" recipe, but so what?
About 2 hours in the fridge, once the dressing has been added.
Home made.
