Caesar Salad

Anchovies and Parmesan cheese combine to give this classic salad its traditional salty flavour.

Good with all barbecued meats. It is especially good served as a first course or a lunch dish with chunks of French bread.

Prepare Ahead

The dressing can be made in advance, and chilled in an airtight container for up to 1 week.


  1. 1

    To make the dressing, mash the garlic and anchovies together to make a thick paste. Transfer to a screw-top jar, add the olive oil, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce, then season to taste with pepper. Shake the dressing until well blended. Set aside.

  2. 2

    To assemble the salad, toss the lettuce leaves with the croutons in a salad bowl. Bring a small saucepan of water to the boil over a high heat. Reduce the heat to medium, add the eggs, and boil gently for no more than 2 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.

  3. 3

    Crack open the eggs, scoop on to the lettuce, and toss. Shake the dressing again, then add to the salad, and toss again. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and serve at once.
