Kerry's Caesar Salad Dressing
« on: December 27, 2009, 02:15:40 am »
I've been making this rather excellent (if I do say so myself) dressing for years, an immersion blender being the best tool until I discovered the thermomix.  I always had to plan ahead, making sure the ingredients were at room temperature before starting or risk the dressing failing to thicken properly.  Warming to 37 C before drizzling in the room temperature oils insures a perfect result.   


Name of Recipe:Kerry's Caesar Salad Dressing
Number of People:4-6
Ingredients:
1 large or 2 small cloves garlic
1 large egg
1 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 fillets of anchovy
1 cup neutral oil (such as sunflower oil)
4 tbsp olive oil


Preparation:
Process garlic for a few second at speed 5 until chopped.  Add egg, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and anchovy fillets - set for 4 minutes and  ^^ at 37 C.  Turn off heat, place MC with open side up, turn up to speed 7 and pour the oils onto the lid slowly.  It will drizzle down beside the MC and into the bowl.  This will be a thick dressing, akin to mayonnaise, but a tiny bit thinner. 


For salad preparation - I like a sliced or torn head of romaine lettuce, about 3 tbsp of dressing, pepper to taste, nice garlicy croutons, crumbled crisp bacon and a huge quantity of freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

Chocdoc, that sounds truly delicious. Definitely one for our summer months ahead.

Have just made this for our salad tonight, left out anchovies as allergic.
Will pour over salad then sprinkle with parmessan cheese.

The dressing tastes lovely.
