Recipe: Caesar salad

Caesar salad

I love a good caesar salad. You know the type – salty, savoury, full of flavour. Unfortunately, many are just lettuce tossed with creamy, packaged dressing. Lots of calories and a bit of a letdown.

If you want to impress guests with a delicious caesar salad drizzled with homemade dressing, try this out – it’s my mother’s recipe that she’s been tweaking over the years, and I finally just asked her what was in the darn thing. Trust me, you’ll be tossing your bottled dressing in the trash in no time!

Ingredients (for 4):

  • 1 head of romaine lettuce
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 clove raw garlic
  • 1 tbsp. worstershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • Up to 1/2 tsp. or so anchovy paste (depending on preference)
  • 1/4 lemon
  • 1/4 cup shaved parmesan arregiano
  • Pepper


  1. Mix together olive oil, garlic, worstershire sauce and dry mustard in a small mixing bowl.
  2. Add anchovy paste if you wish, or leave out for a vegetarian option. Mix with a fork until it blends fully with the rest of the dressing mixture.
  3. Drizzle dressing over romaine lettuce shortly before serving.
  4. Squeeze and drizzle lemon juice and add parmesan shavings and ground pepper.
