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.
