How To Make Caesar Salad with Pancetta
This salad is everything a Caesar should be — assertive, complex, and rich — with a few bonus points tacked on for the inspired use of pancetta (both on its own and as an instrument for crisping the homemade sourdough croutons). Marie Viljoen’s dressing is mostly traditional (egg yolk, anchovy, garlic, olive oil) but veers towards the creative with the addition of lime juice, which contributes a pleasantly bitter hit of acid.
- juice of 1/2 a lime
- 1 yolk from a lightly boiled egg (coddled for a minute or two in boiling water)
- 2 Garlic cloves crushed fine
- 3 Anchovy fillets, chopped small
- Black pepper
- 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 4 tablespoons finely grated Parmigiano
- 1 Romaine lettuce head, cleaned and torn into bite-sized pieces
- 3 thick slices pancetta, cooked till crispy
- 1 slice sourdough bread, torn into 3/4-inch chunks
- 1 Garlic clove, peeled, kept whole
- In a bowl beat the lime juice into the softly boiled egg yolk.
- Add the crushed garlic.
- Add the finely-chopped anchovies.
- Add black pepper.
- Gradually whisk in the oil.
- Add the Parmigiano.
- Taste. If you need salt, add it now.
- To the bowl, add the Romaine and toss well with your hands.
- Lick your fingers.
- In the same pan in which the pancetta crisped, toast the torn-up pieces of sourdough over medium heat. When
- crispy, rub each piece lightly with the whole garlic clove. Toss over salad.
- Add pieces of crispy pancetta.
- Enjoy with some cold, fruity white wine.
How To Make Radish Salad with Curry-Orange Dressing
This is a variation on a salad I originally made with tomatoes. I decided to give it a whirl with crunchy radishes instead and fell in love with the results. It’s a spicy, sweet, tangy, and salty explosion of flavors.
- 1 cup of orange juice
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
- salt to taste
- 2 cups radishes, washed and roughly chopped
- 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
- In a small saucepan, bring the orange juice to a boil and cook it until it is reduced to about 1/4 cup (about 20-25 minutes). Take off the heat.
- Whisk the olive oil, and curry powder into the orange juice. Add salt to taste. Toss the chopped radishes with the dressing.
- Divide the radishes between 4 plates. Top with the feta cheese and chopped mint.
How To Make Thai-Inspired Asparagus Salad with Fried Meyer Lemon
This little salad’s flavors come at you head first, hitting you with bursts of chili and jalapeno, sprays of cilantro and lemongrass and blows of lime. We liked clintonhillbilly’s gregarious approach to seasoning and willingness to break from Thai cooking by adding Worcestershire, and well, asparagus. The fried Meyer lemons are a zinger — make sure you slice them thin, thin, thin — and could just as easily be paired with fritto misto, fried chicken or grilled fish.
- Thai-Inspired Asparagus Salad
- 1 bunch asparagus
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
- 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
- 1/4 cup basil, chopped
- 2 teaspoons chili-garlic paste or sauce
- 1/2 jalapeño, minced, seeds removed
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger, finely minced
- 2 teaspoons prepared lemongrass, finely minced
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil (optional)
- 1 shallot, thinly sliced
- Fried Meyer Lemon Slices
- 1 Meyer lemon
- 1 cup panko
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 inch of oil for frying
- Thai-Inspired Asparagus Salad
- Prepare asparagus by trimming off the woody ends and peeling off the pointed from the bottom half of the stalks. Blanch asparagus in salted water until al dente.
- In a bowl or jar, combine all other ingredients and stir or shake until sugar dissolves and oil and lime juice are well combined. Prepared lemongrass is sold in Asian markets and in Whole Foods — if using fresh lemongrass, peel the outer stalks and use only the softer inner portion, soaking in warm water or very briefly boiling to soften.
- Shock asparagus in ice water, drain and place in the salad bowl. Pour dressing over asparagus.
Fried Meyer Lemon Slices
- Slice Meyer lemon into very thin slices. Do not peel.
- Mix panko, salt, and pepper and spread on a plate. Use salt and pepper to your own taste, a bit less or more is fine.
- Beat egg in a small bowl.
- Dip each lemon slice in the egg, and then pat panko mixture onto both sides.
- Heat oil in a pan until it spits back when you flick droplets of water into it. One inch of oil should be enough to submerge the lemon slices.
- Fry lemon slices until panko browns. Remove and place on a paper towel to drain.
- In each bowl, place asparagus salad and a few fried lemon slices. Serve while lemon slices are still hot.
