Caesar Salad

Today is National Cabernet Day as well as all I can think of is steak. Or, I presume, steakhouse food. My preferred method to start a steak as well as potato square meal is with a Caesar salad. Not one of those covered with hen, which is a dish per se, yet just merely clothed lettuce with a handful of Parmesan swirls on the top and also some homemade garlic croutons– that is if I’ve prepared all right in advance (I really did not).

I like this variation of Caesar clothing due to the fact that it’s made with active ingredients I constantly carry hand– an egg yolk, Worcestershire sauce (instead of anchovies), garlic, Dijon, olive oil, vinegar– as well as integrates in regarding 5 mins. It constantly astonishes me the amount of various clothing tastes and also structures you can leave a couple of, shelf-stable components plus a handful of flavorings and also the periodic egg yolk. Mind boggling.

Anyhow, return later on when I’ll share a dish for steak as well as au gratin potatoes. Today’s steakhouse dish is a multicourse, multi-meal challenge– do not neglect the red wine!
