Classic Caesar Salad with a Twist!

  • We've given this classic recipe a twist and substituted our local producer, Happy Snack Company's Fa'Va Beans or Chick Peas for usual croutons. Extra crunch guaranteed! For another choice - substitute the Caesar dressing for one of the Pomodoras, Maleny Cuisine or Hinterland Feijoas Salad Dressing range. We use all these gorgeous products in our hampers (and our kitchen!). Recipe based on taste.com.au.

INGREDIENTS

4 eggs

6 slices Prosciutto

2 tbs extra virgin olive oil

2 cos lettuces, outer leaves removed, halved lengthways

Happy Snack Company Fa'va Beans or Chick Peas

Shaved parmesan, to serve!

 

CAESAR DRESSING Or Alternative

1 egg yolk

1 garlic clove, crushed

2 tsp Dijon mustard

1 tbs lemon juice

2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

160ml (2/3 cup) light olive oil

2 tsp Dijon mustard

1 tbs lemon juice

2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

160ml (2/3 cup) light olive oil & 1 tbs hot water 

METHOD

 

1. Dressing, place egg yolk, garlic, mustard, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce in a food processor and process until well combined.

With the motor running, add the oil in a thin, steady stream until mixture is thick and pale. Beat in hot water. Season. Cover and place in the fridge until required.

 

2. Place the eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly (this centres the egg yolk).

Reduce the heat to medium. Simmer for 4 minutes. Refresh under cold water. Peel the eggs.

 

3. Preheat oven to 180C/160C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the prosciutto on the tray and bake for 8-10 minutes or until crisp. Set aside to cool completely. Break the prosciutto into large shards.

 

4.  Plunge the lettuce into a large bowl of iced water for 10 minutes to chill. Drain well.

 

5. Arrange the lettuce on large serving plates. Tuck the prosciutto among the lettuce. Cut the eggs in half and place on top of the salad. Add the Fa'va beans or Chick Peas and sprinkle with the parmesan and drizzle with the dressing.
