My daughter will tell you that I am a bit of a caesar salad nut. And with that information my daughter's partner (head chef at Jones the Grocer - Melbourne) - when FIRST meeting me... made me a Caesar Salad. He isn't the type to be nervous, but his was a fantastic salad!!!
I generally order it when we go out and will drive for miles to go to places that deliver a very nice one.
The Caesar salad dressing from the "Entertaining with Nico" super little cookbook is divine!!!
You would have thought, that with three anchovies that the dressing would be a) salty and b) fishy... but it wasn't at all! Rest easy.
HINT: don't forget the eggs... like I did (DUH!!)
HINT: try it with a little crushed walnuts and slivers of green apple. Zootz at Henley Beach does it that was and it WAS one of the places I used to go for my special Caesar salad.
Yes... I did go a little awry with the recipe.. there are snow peas and cherry tomatoes in the salad... but they were in the fridge!
