As it turned out during the show, according to the test panel’s conclusions, the ready-made salads are hardly ever as tasteful as a Caesar Salad should be. Why not prepare a fresh salad by yourself? Here is Serre’s recipe for a classic, delicious Caesar Salad! 



Little gem
Romaine salad
Parmesan cheese
Olive oil

              2.5 cup mayonnaise
              46 grams of pasteurized egg yolk
              25 grams of parmesan cheese
              25 grams of lemon juice
              10 grams of soy oil
              2 fillets anchovy 
              3 drops of Tabasco
              1 clove of garlic

Pick the leaves of the romaine lettuce and the little gem and place both in a colander. Wash the lettuce and drain it well. Then cut part of the leaves into thin strips (julienne). Boil the egg for 4 minutes and rinse it with ice water. This will not overcook the egg and the yolk stays pretty soft. For the croutons, you remove the crust of two slices of white bread and cut it into small cubes (brunoise). Mix the dices with the (garlic)-oil and place on a baking dish. Bake the croutons in the oven for 10 minutes at 180°C.

Serve the salad on a large plate. Mix the dressing with the lettuce and put it on the plate. Cut a few slices of parmesan cheese and sprinkle it over the salad. Cut the boiled egg in an egg slicer and place the slices on top of the salad together with the croutons. Finish the dish with a drizzle of olive oil and ... your salad is ready to serve!
