In keeping with my recent trend of trying to have some healthier fare on Fridays, I thought I’d share this cesar salad dressing with you. I found it at Tasty Kitchen and have altered it slightly to have less lemon juice. The original recipe called for 1/3 cup of lemon juice but when I made it I felt it was just way too lemony. I’ve dropped it down to 1/4 cup but feel free to adjust to your own personal taste.
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1 dash freshly ground black pepper
One more thing – use the anchovy paste even if you hate anchovies. Really. I promise it doesn’t taste like fish when mixed into the dressing and adds to the flavour. Really.
Combine all ingredients and whisk until completely blended.
Serve with romaine lettuce and fresh croutons.
Don’t those chicken nuggets look yummy too? Next week, I promise.
