MY MOMS CAESAR SALAD


As long as I can remember this salad has been a staple in my life.
2 cloves garlic, smashed
1 hard boiled egg
2 lemons, juiced
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan, plus extra for garnish
Freshly ground black pepper
2 heads romaine lettuce
Directions Make the dressing: Put the hard boiled egg, lemon juice, and smashed garlic into a blender and process for 30 seconds until the mixture is smooth. With the blender running, pour the olive oil in slowly for the dressing to emulsify. Stir in the Parmesan, a pinch of salt and a couple of grinds of black pepper; set aside. (Refrigerate the dressing if you will not be using it right away.) Assemble the salad: Tear the lettuce into a large bowl. Add enough dressing to coat the salad to your liking. Add some extra Parmesan and toss the salad well. Serve immediately.
