Caesar salad


There’s nothing better than a Caesar salad! The dressing is creamy, garlicy, salty from the anchovies and a little kick from the lemon and red wine vinegar! I like my salad kinda dry and not drenched in dressing!

The most complicated step in this recipe is coddling the egg – it should be runny inside and the white still soft and not hardened. If you overcook your egg then you should cook a new egg as the dressing will be ruined otherwise.


  • 1 tin anchovies
  • 200mL olive oil
  • 50mL red wine vinegar
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, peeled
  • several dashes of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 coddled egg (boiled 4 minutes)
  • white pepper to taste
  • 200g bacon, fried and then chopped
  • 1 head of Romaine lettuce, washed, dry and tear into bite size pieces
  • black olives (optional)
  • 100g Parmesan cheese, grated


Step 1

Bung the first 8 ingredients together (from the anchovies to the egg) in a blender and blend until smooth.

Step 2

In a mixing bowl, add 4-5 leafs of lettuce, 3 tablespoons of bacon, 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese, and enough dressing to lightly coat the lettuce leaves, about 1-1.5 tablespoons of dressing. Mix until the lettuce is coated with the dressing.

Step 3

Plate up. Decorate with some black olives. Enjoy!
