Julia's Caesar over Mixed Greens, a non-traditional Caesar Salad

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

This quickly composed salad is not the recipe I am sharing, no not at all! Today's recipe is for the salad dressing that you see drizzled over the greens.

Julia's Caesar over Mixed Greens. Deliciously different!

It is delicious! 

Often when we enjoy a salad with our meals it is not a traditional salad in a recipe sort of way. For example, what you see over this platter of salad greens is a Caesar dressing, yet there are no croutons scattered over the greens, and it is more than just romaine lettuce.

A variety of greens is often on our table in salad form, and I have come to not only enjoy the fresh taste but crave a salad with such flavor and variety. This salad contained Romaine, Tuscan Kale, and Baby Spinach.

Julia's Caesar over Mixed Greens. Shake up your salad routine!

Julia's Caesar
adapted from: Dinner, A Love Story

1 large clove garlic, pressed or minced very very finely
8 anchovy fillets, mashed to a paste (about 1 T)
juice of 1/2 lemon (2 T)
2 T red wine vinegar
several grinds of pepper
1/4 c mayonnaise

1/2 c olive oil
1/2 c Parmesan Cheese,  finely grated (from the green can, is perfect for this)
salt if desired

Combine garlic through mayonnaise, whisk until smooth. Whisk in oil. Taste, add salt if desired.

Refrigerate until needed, drizzle over salad greens of choice.

I love serving avocado halves with extra dressing,
 for those that want a bit more dressing to enjoy!
