Download PDF of Recipe



1 tsp anchovy paste

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp Dijon mustard

Juice from ½ lemon

Worcestershire sauce

Freshly ground black pepper

Extra virgin olive oil

Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese


2 heads romaine lettuce, cut into 1” pieces


To Prepare Dressing:

In a small bowl whisk together anchovy paste, garlic, mustard, and lemon juice. Add a dash or two of Worcestershire sauce and fresh ground pepper. Add about 1/4 cup of olive oil and whisk. Add a bit more olive oil if the dressing is thick.

To Prepare Salad:

In a large bowl, toss romaine lettuce with the dressing. Sprinkle Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese on top and add extra pepper if desired. Serve fresh or chilled.

Preparation Tips:

Don’t be scared of using anchovy paste. The paste adds flavor (and salt) and works much better than anchovy filets.

Caesar salad can be part of a healthy diet provided you don’t pour on the cheese or top off with croutons.

The key to a great Caesar salad is to use dry lettuce. If the lettuce is wet, the dressing won’t coat the leaves and your salad will end up soggy.
