Serre’s Caeser salad


Little Gem
Romaine salad
Parmesan cheese
Olive oil


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


Pick the leaves of the romaine lettuce and the little lem and place both in a colander. Wash the lettuce and drain it well. Then cut a part of the leaves into thin strips (julienne).

Boil the egg 8 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 2 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 the top together with the croutons. Finish the dish with a drizzle of olive oil and … your salad is ready to serve.
