With these tips you can make your Caesar salad even tastier

Must Try

The Caesar salad is a true classic and there are few cuisines in which this salad has never appeared. It’s fresh, simple to make and just delicious (of course). But the simple recipe of the salad also hides many pitfalls and that is a shame. It’s all in the right ingredients and the right preparation to make the salad the success it is.

Although the salad was actually created ‘by accident’ (when the salad was first made, many ingredients were out of stock and served as a stopgap solution), there are certainly some things you can do right (or wrong). do when making it.

Caesar salad heaven

A classic Caesar salad consists of Romaine lettuce, egg, (Parmesan) cheese, croutons, lemon juice, garlic, anchovies and olive oil. Of course you can vary endlessly (use a different cheese, add avocado or serve it with bacon or chicken ), but the key to a good Caesar is in the base: the classic ingredients.

These four tips are essential to put a really good Caesar salad on the table:

  1. Wash the romaine lettuce well and let the leaves dry and rest. Use only the inner, crispy leaves. Just before you want to serve the salad, put the lettuce leaves in the freezer for 10 minutes. This ensures a good crunchy bite .
  2. Make your own croutons . And not a day in advance, but up to a minute in advance. Add them to the salad while they are still warm. Together with the ice-cold leaves, this creates the effect that makes your salad irresistible.
  3. Boil the egg not hard, not soft, but super soft. Originally, the egg was boiled for only one minute ( a coddled egg ). This caused the egg yolk to spread over the entire salad like a dressing and to melt together with the cheese. Hungry yet?
  4. Do not serve cutlery with your salad, but eat it with your hands. This is how the salad was originally served and – believe us – it makes it just that little bit tastier.
