Rustic Caesar Salad

After a heavy week of wine and dine, it is time to detox our bodies (at least for me!). I hereby pronounce this week to be “Salad Week”! Who says it is boring to have salads? Let’s chase the Monday blues away with this delicious salad. A classic Caesar salad is a salad of romaine lettuce and croutons dressed with parmesan cheese, lemon juice, olive oil, egg, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and black pepper. The BNF version does not use egg or croutons but rather anchovies and the irresistible bacon. To make it as a meal, protein such as grilled chicken or ham is added. Jerk Chicken is one of my family’s favorite topping. Of course in these days, there are so many different versions, there is no right or wrong as long as they taste good, right?
 

Ingredients:
1 head of romaine lettuce
2 strips of bacon

CAESAR DRESSING
3 anchovy fillets
3 garlic cloves
1/2 tsp capers
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 tsp worcestershire sauce

Ground black pepper (to taste)

Serves 2 – 3

You can serve it as a side or add in your favorite protein to make it a light meal. I love to pair this salad with Jerk chicken.
