Instructions

 To make Garlic Croutons: 

 

  1. Cut your bread into cubes and place them on the baking tray. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic, a pinch of pepper and salt. Toss the bread cubes. Spread the bread cubes on a single layer. 
  2. Grill on the preheated oven 350 degrees F/ 180 degrees C for 10 to 12 minutes. 
  3. You get crispy garlic Croutons. 

 Prepare Romaine Lettice. 

 

  1. Wash romaine lettuce a couple of times gently on cold running water, chop them for a bite sized lettuce or simply you can tear off, add to a serving bowl, and set aside. 

 

 Let’s make a salad Dressing: 

 

  1. To a small bowl add all the salad dressing ingredients except oil. Mix them well to combine. 
  2. Now, slowly add olive oil whisking the sauce, keep whisking for a few seconds, you will get a creamy Caesar salad dressing. Check for salt now. If anything you want to add to get the taste you want. 

 

Assemble: 

 

  1. Slowly add the Caesar dressing to romaine lettuce. Sprinkle capers and garlic croutons. Toss the salad and serve. 

 

Notes

  • Hearty Romaine is the perfect crispy choice, which conquers the dressing very well
  • For the croutons, choose a bread that is preferably a day or two old; fresh bread will take longer to become golden brown
  • Tearing the bread instead of slicing them, adds texture to the salad
  • The trick in drizzling the oil drop by drop, is to avoid breaking of the dressing
  • Grilling the vegetables (in this case, lettuce) always adds an awesome depth of flavour.
  • Tossing the salad by hand is an advantage, for the leaves to be well dressed with the dressing
