Caesar Salad with Lemon Parmesan Dressing


Ease of Preparation: Easy
4-6 Servings (dressing 2 cups)

This classic salad has come a long way since its 1924 invention by Caesar Cardini at his Tijuana restaurant. It’s now found on virtually every menu in the country - at home and in restaurants. Since there are as many ways to make it as there are cooks, I don’t spend a lot of time worrying about authenticity, just flavour. Here’s my version.

Caesar Salad with Lemon Parmesan Dressing

For the Salad:

A half loaf of Italian bread
A few generous splashes of olive oil
Two heads of romaine lettuce
A thinly sliced red onion
Lemon Parmesan Dressing
A sprinkle or two of salt and pepper

For the Dressing:

A cup of extra virgin olive oil
The juice and zest of two lemons
A few dashes of Worcestershire sauce
A heaping spoonful of Dijon mustard
One-half cup or so of grated Parmesan cheese
A few cloves of chopped garlic
A sprinkle or two of salt and pepper
For the Salad:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Cut the bread into cubes and toss with enough olive oil to lightly coat each one. Spread the cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown and crisp, about fifteen minutes.

Tear the lettuce into bite-sized pieces and toss with the onion and a half-cup or so of the dressing. Sprinkle the croutons on top and season.

For the Dressing:

Mix everything together until smooth dressing forms. A blender, food processor or an old-fashioned whisk and bowl all work well but I prefer my immersion blender. It’s easier to clean up!

還有水果,灑一些肉桂粉(Cinnamon Powder)和黃糖(Brown Sugar),放到火上去烤,烤出來的水果又香又甜。




  • cumin-蒔蘿;小茴香。一種很香的調味料,我猜想現在外面的沙嗲都有用這個香料醃制。潛能無限的香料。
  • 肉桂粉配上黃糖,適合用來燒烤黃梨、蘋果、香蕉等等。
  • Lemon Parmesan Dressing太酸了,我想如果分段加入檸檬汁,可以有效控制酸度。
  • Parsley和Cilantro醃制肉類,留下的味道不會很濃烈,所以不太適合醃制羊肉和牛肉。另一方面,卻適合用來驅除羊肉和牛肉的騷味。
  • Rosemary(迷迭香),聞的味道很濃烈,可是醃制出來的肉,不會留下很強的味道。
  • Maple Syrup算是一種天然的甜味,還沒有嘗試到。
  • Dijon mustard是山葵的味道。

  1. Aww... I should go. :(

  2. 能到你燒烤會的人都很有口福啊~

  3. 哇 ~ 好棒哦
    肉桂粉配上黃糖来烤水果还是第一次听,很特别,我也想试试看, 可以告诉我更多吗?!

    我也是刚从烧烤会回来,各类的 satay, 也是没有雞翅膀和香腸哦。。 呵呵

  4. 豬肉的沙爹。。我還沒嘗過耶。。呵呵~

  5. mindbard:十月會有另外一個,記得記下來。



    Just..JesS:哦,很簡單的。把水果切成大顆粒(cube),灑一些肉桂粉,然後再灑上黃糖,不需要整顆都沾滿。至於份量,隨意,喜歡比較甜,當然就多一點黃糖,喜歡肉桂味道德的,就灑多一點肉桂粉。其實除了肉桂粉,也可以灑荳蔻粉(Nutmeg Powder)。如果妳家有烤爐,一樣可以做到。



  6. 堕天使曾想过当厨师吗?你对煮食真的很有心得

  7. 那你的bbq一定很特别很健康咯?^^


  8. 哇。。

  9. 烧烤会未必要有肉的,烤番薯、玉蜀黍……也是很美味可口的。

  10. EmiLio:有啊,曾經想過要面試當廚房助理。就是因為沒有甚麼心得,所以才要記錄起來。

    Sai Ling:不是很健康啦,是很有特色而已。是的,大部分的食物都是我準備的。

    LiNg LinG:謝謝。
