Lime Chili Caesar Dressing

This recipe happened when I had a HUGE head of romaine from the farm and was really craving a Caesar salad… but I didn’t have any lemons, only limes. This is a tasty lesson in using what you have and winging it! This dressing is particularly amazing on grilled romaine! From the Officina’s kitchen

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 T minced anchovies or anchovy paste
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 T lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • heavy pinch of sea salt
  • 6 T extra-virgin olive oil

Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor, except lime juice and process for 15 seconds. Slowly add lime juice, add more oil if needed.

Pour over freshly harvested Jericho romaine, roughly torn or grilled romaine halves. Top toasted pumpkin seeds and fresh croutons.
