Old Fashioned Table-side Style Caesar Salad, remember the days when it was made table-side by tuxedo-clad waiters?
Wash the romaine and remove the outer leaves, we want the crisp inner leaves only. Slice off the end and dry each of the leaves with a paper towel so the dressing will stick. Slice the romaine into 1/2 inch, bite sized, pieces and store in the fridge.
Combine anchovies or anchovy paste with the garlic and mince together with two forks. Add extra virgin olive oil and stir. Add the lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, cider vinegar, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper.
Mix well to combine all the ingredients. Mix the dressing with the romaine. Place on a large serving plate and garnish with a few fresh tomato wedges. Shave parmesan cheese over the top and finish with homemade croutons.
* Rinse the anchovy filets in warm water to remove the bitter oil before using.
* you may use anchovy paste from a tube instead of anchovy filets.
* You may use a whole egg instead of the mayonnaise.
