Several people have asked about what I do for salad dressings. I am glad to share my favorites in a series of salad dressing posts. 🙂 My mother raised us on homemade dressings – thus, I am spoiled, and one of the first things I did when I settled into my own home was to get her to right down her recipes! I rarely buy store bought. I prefer knowing what is in my dressing, and the fresh, full flavor of homemade.
I will start with her Caesar Salad recipe. She is famous for this one all the way up the east coast! She learned this recipe at a fancy restaurant in the Bahamas where the chef would make it right in front of her and dad at their table. She ordered it repeatedly and took notes on a napkin until she got it just right.
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
Add all ingredients into a wide mouth quart jar. Screw lid on tightly and shake. Wash a head of Romaine lettuce, shred, and place in large salad bowl. Pour dressing over and toss. Add more Parmesan and croûtons, if desired.
This recipe serves 8-10. Or it makes enough for me and Jeremy to have salad for four days. 🙂 It keeps for about a week in the fridge.
One of our favorite family dinners is spaghetti, Caesar salad, and garlic bread. Usually several people fight over the empty salad bowl, sopping up the last of the yummy dressing with pieces of bread. Yum!
