Lettuce

Traditionally, romaine is the most common green for a Caesar, but lettuce and iceberg will do as well. It’s important to rinse the lettuce under running water and pat dry with a clean towel, so as to avoid the puddles of water that may pool at the bottom of your plate.

Crunchy Croutons

Croutons are usually made from the white bread. In no case should you use old bread or store-bought crackers: they thoroughly spoil the taste of the salad.
There are two ways to make croutons:

  • bake them in the oven until they are covered with a thin golden crust outside and remain soft inside, or
  • fry them in olive oil in a frying pan. Before adding them to the salad, dry them, so as to remove excess oil.

Hard grated cheeses

Parmesan cheese is the most important ingredient of the Ceasar salad. You can also use other types of hard grating cheeses.
