  • About

A lot of restaurants used to make a big show of preparing this salad in front of customers at the table. Today, table-prepared Caesar salads are rare, but a fresh home-made dressing is still a must.



  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon


The Dressing

All of the ingredients should be at room temperature to facilitate the emulsion. In a deep bowl, whisk the egg yolk, lemon juice and mustard until well blended. Pour in the oil very slowly while continuing to whisk. Once you have a nice emulsion, add the rest of the dressing ingredients and mix until combined.
