"Tableside" Caesar Salad
Tableside Caesar Salad
This is coming back - mark my words! Still one of my favorite things in the world.
Chop together 1-2 anchovies + 2-3 cloves garlic and plop at the bottom of a large bowl with 2 diced shallots. To it add the zest and juice of a lemon, an egg yolk, a huge spoonful of Dijon and salt. While whisking stream in extra virgin olive oil (between 1/3 - 1/2 cup) coating the sides of the bowl until thick and creamy. Add Parmesan cheese and more salt, taste it! Then add chopped romaine, chives, frozen and thawed peas and more cheese. Toss to coat and add more cheese, salt and pepper.
I only use pepper on Caesar salad and steak au poivre.
