Recipes 29/11/2017

There is nothing like a delicious Caesar salad, especially when dotted with crispy bacon pieces and smothered in a luscious creamy dressing. A crowd pleaser for many more years to come!

Serves: 4      Prep Time: 20 Minutes       Cook Time: 10 Minutes


1 bag Leaderbrand Caesar Salad mix
3 soft boiled eggs
4 rashers streaky bacon (we love Hellers)
1/4 cup shaved Parmesan
2 tbsp olive oil (we love Olivado)
5 anchovy fillets or sub for 1tsp worchester sauce + 1tbsp capers
2 garlic cloves, peeled
120ml cream (we love Meadowfresh)
Juice of half a lemon


  1. Lay the bacon rashers on a lined tray and bake at 190 degrees celcius until crispy.
  2. Cut the cos into wedges, then lay onto a serving plate. Next, halve the boiled eggs and nestle amongst the lettuce.
  3. Sprinkle over the crostini, followed by the bacon pieces.
  4. To make the dressing, place the olive oil, anchovy/worchester, garlic, cream and lemon juice in a blender and process until smooth and creamy but ensuring not to overblend*. Season to taste.
  5. Dollop the dressing over the salad and serve immediately.

* If your dressing becomes too thick, use a spoon and stir in boiling water until you reach a thinner consistency.

** If you decide not to make your own dressing, use the Caesar dressing and Parmesan which comes with the salad. Easy!
