Caesar Salad

This recipe is from my dad and it is an easy, healthier version of the great Caesar Salad! The homemade croutons are what makes it. I omit the anchovies!


4 slices bread (whole wheat) cut into cubes

4 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons olive oil

4 crushed garlic cloves

1 or 2 heads romaine, washed, chilled and dried

8 tablespoons olive oil

24 or more anchovy fillets, diced

Juice of 1 lemon, or to taste

Salt, if needed

Freshly ground black pepper

1 egg, coddled 1 minute

Parmesan cheese, freshly grated


Sauté the croutons in butter and 2 tablespoons olive oil and add 3 garlic cloves to the pan.

Rub a glass or china salad bowl with the remaining garlic and add the greens. Pour over them the 8 tablespoons olive oil and toss well.

Add the croutons, anchovies and lemon juice to taste. Add freshly ground black pepper to taste, the coddled egg and a good handful of grated cheese. Toss well and add additional cheese if desired.

Serve at once.
