Croutons

Croutons

JB’s Caesar Salad

JB’s Caesar Salad

I love, love a great Caesar—and by they way, Caesars do not have tomatoes added on top—they are about olive oil, eggs, anchovies, home-made croutons, Parmesan cheese and garlic—lots of it! Can be a full meal with a fabulous loaf of rustic or sourdough and a little vino!
1 to 2 heads of romaine lettuce – washed, dried, torn into pieces
1 can of anchovies with capers
garlic croutons
½ to 1 C Parmesan cheese – freshing grated
1 lemon
