Manda Cooks: Homemade Caesar Salad


I’m usually not a huge fan of Caesar salad – to me, they’re usually sort of bland and generic and something I never glance twice at on a menu. But when they’re good, they’re REALLY good, like the Caesar at Sant Ambroeus. And usually it’s all about great dressing, because it’s hard to play too much with lettuce, hard boiled egg, and croutons. So I decided to make real, homemade Caesar dressing (using Bon Appetit’s recipe), complete with anchovies and raw egg — ick! But also, YUM, because it ended up being delicious. I made croutons using an olive breadstick from Bread’s Bakery, and added tomatoes and chicken for a little extra oomph and.. ta-da! Perfect Caesar salad!
