Mock Caesar Dressing

Because the real dressing takes an egg yolk and I have to look up the recipe in Alice Waters (but delicious!).

But this evening we had some lettuce getting old in the crisper.  So I added a rosy-yellow tomato, toasted some bread cubes with olive oil and salt in the toaster oven, grated some Parmesano and whisked up the dressing.

A light supper on a hot Sunday evening with just my love and the baby, perfect after potluck reunion earlier today.  And then a walk down to the pop-up park for some bitter iced coffee and sweet ice cream.

Mock Caesar Dressing - I never measure, but for your benefit, I guessed the amounts here.  Make it to your taste, of course, and double or triple - it keeps fine in the fridge.

1/4 cup mayo
1-2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 garlic clove, finely minced and/or mashed
freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesano

Look at those sweet little cheeks. :-)

The dressing sounds good, though I never make Caesar salad. Maybe I should start?

I count any salad with Caesar dressing on it as a Caesar salad :) Easy!

Brilliant, because after all what is mayonnaise but oil and eggs? One lest step to delicious.

Love this. I hate buying salad dressing because it usually tastes weird and takes up SO much room in the fridge... this is fabulous.

Oh my goodness those baby cheeks!

We have been eating a very similar salad and while serving it to guests on Sunday I thought to myself, I should blog about this one. You beat me to it! So basic yet wonderful. Home made salad dressings are the best!

Margo said...

Lydia Jo, you should still blog it! Never too many homemade salad dressing recipes/ideas.

I can hardly wait to see what Phoebe looks like as she gets older - she is so, so wise looking at this age! (I know I'm repeating myself, but it continues to amaze me)

Oh, yes, what were we talking about? Dressing, home made ... this looks delicious. I keep trying to come up with a substitute for lemon/lime/vinegar that will be easier on my sensitive teeth and digestion. Sigh. I don't think there's anything that would taste as good.

Well, it seems most of my comments now that I am catching up on blog reading are going to do more with baby and less with salad. Those drippy cheeks. Every picture of her is satisfying to behold! I love seeing her sweet face!
