Caesar Lime Dressing

We are introducing a fresh take on the classic caesar dressing that is usually made with anchovies. Capers are the perfect anchovy substitute for the saltiness that anchovies provide. Persian lime extra virgin olive oil gives it a nice limyness throughout. Combined with chopped romaine lettuce and kale, toasted garlic olive oil croutons, and we have ourselves a new kind of caesar salad.

What you’ll need:

1/4 cup mayonnaise

3 tablespoons Persian Lime Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 teaspoons capers

1 teaspoon caper juice

2 tablespoons lime juice

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Fresh ground pepper to taste

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

Here’s how:

Whisk together mayonnaise, olive oil, and mustard in a small bowl. Grind capers in a small food procesor or chop and smash by hand. Add ground capers, garlic, caper juice, lime juice, salt, and  pepper. Whisk well. Finally, stir in grated parmesan cheese.

Combine caesar salad with chopped romaine lettuce. Feel free to add chopped kale as a healthier option. Toast baguette slices on both sides in a pan with Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and crumble on top of salad. Then add shaved parmesan.
