The Original Caesar Salad Recipe
This is the original Caesar salad recipe from Chef Caesar's daughter Rose Cardini.
It is so delicious you won't believe it was first created out of whatever the chef had left in his kitchen!
This salad is such a rich and delicious salad recipe you will make it over and over again.
Crush the garlic cloves and salt into a paste in a large wooden salad bowl, using the back of a wooden salad serving spoon.
Add the anchovies and do the same. Add the Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard, lemon juice and pepper. Whisk in the remaining oil until thoroughly combined.
Add the grated Parmesan cheese and whisk again until combined.
Add the shredded lettuce and toss thoroughly. Add the coddled eggs and toss until the lettuce is coated with the egg. Top with shaved or shredded Parmesan cheese. Serve.
* To Make Coddled Eggs:
Put egg (in the shell) in saucepan of room temperature water. Bring water to a simmer and simmer 1 minute. Drain and cool egg immediately by running cool water over it. It will be soft and the white still runny.
Adding the eggs is optional but oh so good.
