This classic Caesar salad is loaded with plenty of garlic, anchovies and Parmigiano cheese. It's also fast and easy to make.
1/2 pound baguette, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 large egg yolk
4 oil-packed anchovy fillets, drained
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 1/2 pounds romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (about 1 1/2 ounces)
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 375°. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss the bread cubes with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil; spread in an even layer and season lightly with salt. Bake the baguette cubes for about 15 minutes, until golden brown and crisp.
Meanwhile, in a blender, combine the egg yolk, anchovy fillets, garlic, vinegar, lemon juice and cayenne and puree. With the machine on, slowly add the remaining 1/2 cup of olive oil and blend until incorporated. Season with salt.
In a large bowl, toss the romaine with the croutons, dressing and cheese, and serve.
