The classic Caesar salad

One of the popular salads and characteristic dishes in Serre is the Caesar salad. The original recipe for the Caesar Salad was invented in Tijuana, Mexico by Caesar Cardini. His original recipe consisted of six ingredients: Romaine lettuce, garlic, Parmesan cheese, croutons, egg and Worchestershire sauce.

Try it yourself

The warmer days are around the corner and this requires fresh salads. Romaine lettuce is the perfect basis for a summer salad. The crispy leaves have a slightly sweet taste and a solid bite. The small version of the Romaine lettuce is called Little Gem and has a different taste and structure. Find below Serre’s recipe for the classic delicious Caesar salad and surprise your family and friends.

Serre’s Caeser salad


Romaine lettuce
Little gem
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 gem and place both in a colander. Wash and drain the lettuce. Optionally, you can cut a part of the leaves into strips. Boil the egg 8 minutes and put it in ice water. This ensures the egg will not overcook and the yolk stays pretty soft.

For the croutons, you remove the crust of 2 slices of white bread and cut it into small dices (brunoise). Mix this with the (garlic) oil and place on a baking tray. Bake the croutons in the oven for 10 minutes at 180 ° C.


Serve the salad on a deep plate. Mix the dressing with the lettuce and put it on the plate. Cut a few slices of Parmesan cheese and sprinkle it on the salad.

Cut the boiled egg 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.
