Caesar Salad with Blender Dressing

  • 6 pieces lettuce leaves, washed well and thoroughly dried

  • 4 rashers bacon, drained and chopped

  • 2 slices of bread, spread lightly with butter and garlic, cubed, toasted/fried

  • parmesan cheese, grated


  • 1/4 cup olive or canola oil

  • 2 pieces anchovy fillets

  • 2 garlic cloves

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground

  • dash of salt

  • hot sauce

  • Worcestershire sauce


  1. Place anchovies, garlic, egg, vinegar, mustard, pepper and other seasonings in blender or food processor.

  2. Blend until mixture is foamy and pale, about 1-1/2 minutes.

  3. With the machine running, add the olive/canola oil, drop by drop, through the feed tube until mixture starts to thicken.

  4. Do not stop the machine at this point or the dressing may not emulsify.

  5. Add the remaining oil in a slow, steady steam.

To Assemble Salad:
Arrange lettuce leaves on salad bowl or plate. Top with bacon bits and croutons. Pour salad dressing and toss. Top with grated parmesan chees. Serve at once.
