Just make a dressing and throw the components into your picnic bag, and you’re ready to go.
There’s not that much that’s different between this Caesar salad, first featured in this Picnic post, and your standard one, but some small changes make it feel all the more special.
First, start with high quality lettuce. Although Caesar is traditionally made using Romaine, a spring mix or high quality greens like Verdini’s Summer Crisp also make a great base for your salad.
The final key is a really great dressing. This dressing is an easier version of Caesar dressing that’s made from scratch. It uses mayonnaise instead of oil and eggs, but it includes anchovies and that’s what gives it the real Caesar flavor. Don’t leave them out!
- ½ cup mayonnaise (lite or regular, your preference)
- 3 oil-packed anchovies, chopped
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
- ½ tsp Dijon mustard
- 3 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese (omit if you want a pareve salad)
- Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
