This is really just another way to present the classic Caesar salad. I’ve added some ingredients to make it my own, but presenting it on a platter similar to this really elevates it to something beautiful to serve at a dinner party! My ingredients are as follows:
Hearts of Romaine, thinly sliced red onion, bacon (fried and rough chopped), croutons and candied walnuts. Caesar dressing recipe to follow.
Cut the course tips off the romaine and the stalk end as well. Cut in half, then cut each half down the center. They will be loose, but move to a platter and lay out flat. Continue with how ever much romaine you plan on serving, overlapping the “halves” somewhat. Distribute the toppings over evenly to your desired quantities. Dallop on the dressing here and there so each piece has some dressing on it. Serve.
My Caesar dressing recipe isn’t firm on the amounts of each ingredient. Depending on whether you like a thicker or thinner dressing, the amounts can be played with to get the perfect consistency.
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup grated parmesan
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp. lemon juice and or cider vinegar
dash worcestershire sauce
fresh ground black pepper
Whisk all ingredients together until well blended.
