When we got married, the only thing my husband could make was a killer Caesar salad. This was his recipe. (The only thing that I could make was a cheese omelette and you don't want that recipe)
Yield: 4 servings
About 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup rustic bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, halved
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 to 3 tablespoons minced anchovies, or to taste
Dash Worcestershire sauce
1 large head romaine lettuce, washed, dried and torn into pieces
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan.
1. Put 2 tablespoons of the oil in a skillet large enough to hold the bread in a single layer and turn heat to medium. When oil shimmers, add bread and sprinkle with salt and pepper; brown lightly on all sides, adding a little more oil if necessary. Remove and set aside.
2. Rub the inside of a salad bowl with the garlic clove; discard it. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Pierce a tiny hole in the broad end of each egg with a pin or needle and boil them for 60 to 90 seconds; they will just begin to firm up. Crack them into the salad bowl, being sure to scoop out the white that clings to the shell.
3. Beat eggs with a fork. Gradually add lemon juice and 6 tablespoons oil, beating all the while. Stir in anchovies and Worcestershire. Taste and add salt if needed, and lots of pepper. Toss well with lettuce; top with Parmesan and croutons; toss again at table. Serve immediately.
