Caesar salad is a staple on restaurant menus across the country, but we’ve yet to find one as perfectly blended as this one – crisp romaine is tossed with creamy dressing, crunchy croutons and premium Parmesan. All hail Caesar!


8 cups romaine lettuce torn into bite-size pieces
1½ cups croutons
½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Creamy Caesar Dressing

¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup buttermilk
½ small garlic clove, finely minced
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
½ tsp Dijon mustard
¼ tsp Worcestershire sauce
¼ tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup olive oil
¾ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


1) Place lettuce and croutons in a large bowl.

2) For the dressing, in a medium bowl, whisk mayonnaise, buttermilk, garlic, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire, salt and pepper until combined. Gradually add olive oil, continuing to whisk until incorporated. Fold in 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Spoon dressing on lettuce and croutons, tossing to coat. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.

Serves 6
