Shepherd's Caesar Salad

printer friendly version

An old Shepherd family recipe - savory, garlicky and delicious. Make this into a whole meal by adding grilled chicken, shrimp or salmon.

Combine 2 crushed or minced garlic cloves with ½ cup fruity olive oil. Let blend for at least ½ hr.  Put 2 tablespoons of this garlic oil into a large skillet.  Add 1½  to 2 cups cubed French bread. Sauté until lightly browned, add salt and pepper to taste.  Set aside and reserve.

Chop one 2 oz. can of anchovies fine and then mash them up very well into a paste with their own oil. Combine with the rest of the garlic oil.  Add ¼  teaspoon dry mustard and a few generous grindings of fresh pepper to taste. Add 4-6 drops Worchester sauce, 3 tablespoons wine vinegar and the juice of one big fresh lemon.

Tear up 2 heavy heads of fresh Romaine leaves into serving size pieces, then pour the dressing over them. Top with the reserved garlic croutons, sprinkle over 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese.  Enjoy immediately.
