This salad is not for wimps. Some Caesar recipes try to downplay the anchovies and garlic, but here you can taste both (hint: The anchovies are in the dressing), and yes, it’s good. Try it with our skirt steak recipe.

What to buy: Be sure to use real Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

Game plan: Make the croutons up to 3 days in advance and store them in an airtight container.

This is a great salad to make for a party. You can either set out the bowl of tossed salad with plates for your guests to help themselves, or arrange the salad on small plates beforehand.


  1. 1Place the romaine, croutons, cheese, and dressing in a large bowl.
  2. 2Toss to combine, making sure that all the romaine leaves are evenly coated.
  3. 3Arrange the salad on plates, season with pepper, and serve immediately.
