Step by step recipe with photo
From the existing legends of the origin of the salad, I like the one in which the American chef with the Italian name Caesar Cardini was tasked with urgently figuring out a snack, and besides crispy romaine lettuce leaves, a baguette and eggs, which he still would not have time to cook, he has nothing was out of stock. The chef did not lose his head and mixed lettuce leaves with an egg, sprinkled with olive oil, lemon juice and Worcester sauce, tossed the croutons and served … After the salad impressed the eaters very positively, he was given the name of the chef, who later improved the whole thing in a more relaxed setting.
Over the years, additions have been made to the salad by other chefs and restaurant and homemade ones. The most popular are "Caesar with chicken" and "Caesar with shrimps", as well as variations with tomatoes. I offer a variant close to the classic one.
Note. The recipe for dressing for Caesar on the site is given.
Prepare the ingredients:
Baguette for crackers, i.e. croutons, can be diced or sliced, and ciabatta can be torn into pieces.
I already have a baguette with garlic, and if it were a regular baguette, then if you wish, you can sprinkle it with olive oil with garlic added to it, rubbed with salt.
Dry the croutons in a preheated oven until browning.
Or fry the croutons in a skillet.
Grate the parmesan finely.
Lettuce should be juicy and crunchy: romaine, iceberg, etc. Tear it with your hands and sprinkle with half the Parmesan.
Drizzle with dressing.
Stir or just stir.
Top with croutons and sprinkle with the rest of the Parmesan.
Classic Caesar salad is ready.
Serve the Caesar salad immediately.
Enjoy your meal!
