Classic Caesar Salad with Homemade Dressing

The anchovy paste used in this recipe is naturally briny, so add additional salt sparingly. For best results, prepare the dressing in advance to give flavors a chance to combine before serving.

For best results, allow bread to set out uncovered overnight. Also, use a small amount of butter while toasting to avoid overly greasy results.

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 5-10 minutes

½ c. mayonnaise
½ c. Greek yogurt
½ T. fresh lemon juice

3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Spread the melted butter with a pastry brush to evenly coat the bottom and sides of the skillet.

4. Add the bread cubes to the skillet and lightly season with the garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Toast the bread, stirring frequently, until lightly browned on all sides, approximately 6-8 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

5. When ready to serve, assemble the salad by adding the chopped Romaine lettuce to a large mixing bowl. Add the toasted croutons and shaved Parmesan and drizzle with 1/3 cup of dressing. Gently toss to combine.

6. Serve immediately on chilled salad plates with remaining salad dressing on the side. Enjoy!
