Caesar Salad

Again, this salad must be prepared immediately prior to serving.
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, torn into bite sized pieces
  • 2 bunches fresh spinach leaves, torn into pieces
  • 10 ounces extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. Salad Supreme
  • 6 Tbsp. Romano cheese, freshly grated
  • 1 martini (1-1/2 oz gin or vodka plus 2 drops dry vermouth)
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Croutons

Crush the garlic cloves and soak them in the olive oil for at least 3 hours before making the salad. This infuses the flavor of the garlic into the oil. The garlic may be removed before using the oil, or you may further chop the garlic and add it to the salad, depending on your preference. I happen to like lots of garlic, so I finely chop the garlic and add it to the salad. Another option, if you really like the garlic flavor, is to puree the garlic and olive oil mixture in a blender or food processor before using.

Tear lettuce and spinach leaves and put them into a large salad bowl for tossing. While tossing leaves, add the olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Then add the Salad Supreme and grated Romano cheese, tossing until well mixed. Finally, add one whole egg, the juice from one lemon, and the martini. Continue tossing until the egg is thoroughly blended in. Top with croutons, a little more Romano cheese, and serve immediately.
