Homemade Caesar Salad – “A Salad For Each Week” #34

Last week, I posted the carrot cake oatmeal recipe (which seemed to be a big hit with many of you!) that is inspired by Anna’s love of Grandma’s carrot cake. One of Anna’s other “Grandma” favorites is her Caesar salad. This is a salad that Anna, my mom, my niece, Gabby, and I fight over. You will often find one of us eating the leftovers out of the serving bowl! The photo for this salad is from our picnic last week at the park. I brought leftover chicken and added it to my salad for a complete meal, and since this is not an egg or mayo based dressing, it travels well. So here is the recipe, and I hope you enjoy one of our family favorites…


Homemade Caesar Salad

-1 large head romaine, chopped
-1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
-2-3 garlic cloves (I like 3!)
-2 teaspoons anchovy paste
-1 teaspoon dry mustard
-2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
-1/4 teaspoon pepper
-1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast
-Whole grain croutons if desired

Place oil in a mason jar. On a cutting board, place anchovy paste and dry mustard into a pile. Begin to finely mince garlic in with the mustard and paste. Scrape into mason jar, add in Worcestershire sauce and pepper. Seal and shake.
In a large bowl, pour half of dressing into the bottom. Add in romaine and toss to combine. Drizzle additional dressing over top of salad and add Parmesan cheese and croutons if desired. Toss again and serve. Makes two servings in my house or about 6-8 in a “normal” household 🙂

Make extra dressing and then check out link #17 below – Caesared Brussel Sprouts – yummy!
