Caesar Salad

Yes, it is possible to make vegetarian Caesar salad, and with this recipe you’ll never even miss the anchovies.

Yield 6 servings
Time 5 minutes
  • large bowl
  • two wooden spoons
  • 6 plates
  • 8 c romaine lettuce, torn
  • about ½ c Caesar dressing
  • 2 c croutons
  • ¼ c Parmesan cheese, freshly grated or thinly sliced
Directions Toss romaine with dressing, adding more as needed until the leaves are coated, then toss again with croutons.

Arrange on plates, top with Parmesan, and serve.

Notes According to the Reluctant Gourmet, the original Caesar salad didn’t even have anchovies – too bad someone changed the recipe along the way.
