Ceasar Salad
1 Romaine lettuce
10 capers
3 garlic cloves
1 can of anchovies in olive oil
1 Tbls. wine vinegar
4 Tbls. virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp. lemon juice
HP sauce
1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 egg yolk
8 Tbls. parmesian cheese
Croutons (if you like them)
1 oz. Cognac
Tabasco sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper


If it doesn't have anchovies, it ain't Ceasar. How many times you order a Ceasar salad and become disappointed once you eat it. Most restaurants try to give you a cheap version of this delicious salad dressing. Now you can make your own at home. If you do not like anchovies, don't add the whole anchovies at the end but still use a few when making the dressing.


Wash the lettuce and brake it apart, then drain it.
Use a garlic press to mash the garlic or simply smash it the best you can


Put the salt, pepper, half of the anchovies, garlic and capers in a wooden bowl
Press with a wooden spoon and mix well until you get a paste
Add the lemon juice, 3 dashes of HP sauce, 3 dashes or Tabasco sauce, Cognac and mustard and mix well into the paste
Add the olive oil and vinegar, mix well again
Just before serving, add the egg yolk and mix the dressing again
Add the lettuce and mix again
Sprinkle parmesan cheese top and drained anchovies.


You should really use a wooden bowl if you have one, as well as wooden spoons to prepare this salad.

The easiest and fastest way to peel garlic is to wrap it in rubber, and roll it back and forth a few times. We use a rubber husband, it takes us 2 seconds to peel a garlic clove.

You are welcome to add cold pieces of chicken if you want to make a whole meal out of this.

Way too many people ask me what HP sauce is. It is an English Steak Sauce that can be found all over the world. Well, most of the world.
