Ingredients (as always, as organic as possible)
3 Egg Yolks
1 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard (or 1 tsp dry mustard)
1 ½ Teaspoons Capers
1 ½ Teaspoons anchovy paste (4-5 flat anchovies)
½ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
2 Teaspoons Organic Zero
3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
4 Crushed Garlic
1/3 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese Grated
The reason for this recipe is
that no matter where you shop (even health food stores or the
organic section of your supermarket), salad dressings contain lousy
oils (soy, canola), lousy sugars, and ingredients we really don't
want. This recipe is the healthiest you will ever find for Caesar
Take your capers and put them on
a small plate. Crush them up with a fork. Crush your garlic (in a
garlic press) and add it to the capers. Add your anchovy paste to
this plate, or crush up your flat fillets with a fork.
Separate the egg yolks and put
them into a mixing bowl. Your eggs should be organic to ensure that
they are safe raw. Add your lemon juice,
mustard, and freshly ground pepper. You can substitute another
sweetener for Organic Zero, such as Sucanat™,
honey, or even stevia. Be careful with the stevia, but use only a
teaspoon for these others.
You're going to add the olive
oil to the eggs, but you'll want to add slowly while whipping to
keep it all from separating.
My choice for this task is the Hamilton
Beach Turbo Twister. Use the whisk attachment, and add the oil very
Next whip in the garlic, capers,
and anchovies and continue blending all the ingredients.
Serve over Romaine lettuce, you
can add some anchovies (if you like them), and then sprinkle on the
Some like croutons on their
salad, but it's hard to find healthy croutons. Additionally, do you
really need the extra carbs. One rule of keeping weight off is this:
never mix carbs and fats. I don't use croutons on my salads.
