Caesar salad is one of those recipes that everyone loves. It makes an easy lunch or dinner party starter and requires very little legwork or ingredients.


  • 4 cloves garlic

  • 150ml white wine

  • 4 slices of streaky bacon, cut into lardons

  • 2 thick slices white bread, like Bloomer, cubed

  • Knob of butter

  • 2 Cos lettuces

  • 4 egg yolks

  • 2 anchovy fillets

  • 150g fresh parmesan, grated

  • 300ml Extra Virgin olive oil

  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard

  • Seasoning


  • 1.

    Peel the garlic and place in a pan with the wine. Bring to the boil and cook for about 5 minutes until the cloves are soft.

  • 2.

    Take two pans. Crisp the bacon in one and cook the bread cubes in some butter until golden brown in the other one.

  • 3.

    Remove the leaves from the Cos and wash and dry well, then cut into chunky pieces.

  • 4.

    Using a hand blender, add the wine and garlic together with the egg yolks, anchovy and cheese and blend, adding the oil slowly to stop the mix from splitting. This shouldn’t happen, as the addition of the cheese should make the mix blend together more easily. Add the mustard and seasoning to taste.

  • 5.

    Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl, season and munch away.
