Crisp romaine lettuce is easily transformed into our fresh-tasting Caesar Salad. Our Test Kitchen’s homemade Caesar Salad dressing beats bottled by a mile!

Serves: 4
Preparation Time: 5 min

1 head romaine lettuce, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 cups croutons (See Notes)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese, divided
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 (2-ounce) can anchovies in oil, drained

1. In a large bowl, combine romaine and croutons; set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, milk, lemon juice, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, the garlic, salt, and pepper; whisk until smooth and creamy.

3. Add dressing to lettuce and croutons; toss to coat well.

4. Top with anchovies and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.

This can be turned into a chicken Caesar salad meal by arranging the salad on plates and topping with strips of grilled boneless, skinless, chicken breasts.
