Classic Caesar Salad


  • 2 small garlic cloves 
  • 2 anchovy fillets, minced, or ½ tsp. of anchovy paste 
  • 1 tbsp. light mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. Parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Iceburg lettuce
  • Croutons

Place the garlic in a mortar with a pinch of kosher salt and use the pestle to mash it together until you have a paste. If you do not have a mortar and pestle, place the garlic and a pinch of salt on a cutting board and continue to smash the garlic with the back of a wide-bladed knife until it turns into a paste.

In a small bowl whisk together the garlic, anchovies, mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Add the oil in a stream, whisking until the oil is completely blended in. Add the Parmesan cheese and continue to whisk. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Toss with lettuce and top with croutons and extra Parmesan cheese.
