One of the mainstays of a summertime menu should be a Caesar Salad. It is quick and easy to make, and very tasty and satisfying.
But Caesar dressing, like salad cream, is one of those things that everyone uses but no one seems to know how to make. Yet it is remarkably easy if you scour the internet for the correct recipes.
You will need:
Two large tablespoons of Mayonnaise
One and a half teaspoons of Dijon mustard
One teaspoon of Olive oil
Salt and pepper
One teaspoon of vinegar
Half a teaspoon of garlic paste
Half a teaspoon of lemon juice
To make the dressing you can use a whisk and a bowl, and chop the anchovies very fine or you can use a blender, like I do.
I add the ingredients to a blender and blend for thirty seconds to a minute. Transfer to a small dish and place in a fridge for half an hour. This gives the flavours time to blend and the mixture starts to set.
When you need it, add the mixture to a mixing bowl with the ingredients for a Caesar salad and mix well.
