Caesar Salad





My daughter Rachel said this was heaven on a plate. Now that is a massive compliment and recommendation. It's an easy salad to make if you buy cooked chicken breasts. You could even buy ready made croutons if you wanted to save time. 



Ingredients

Serves 2
2 cooked chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
Any crisp lettuce, little gem or iceberg
Any white chunky bread, ciabatta, sourdough, cut into chunks
2 anchovy fillets
1 clove of garlic
5 tablespoons of mayonnaise
A handful of grated Parmesan
Juice of half a fresh lemon
Black pepper to season

Method
Crush the garlic clove in a pestle and mortar, add the anchovy fillets to make a paste. Mix this with the mayonnaise and the lemon juice to make a creamy dressing. Season with black pepper.
Fry the chunks of bread in some olive oil, until golden and crisp.
Put the shredded lettuce in a bowl with the chicken and dress the salad until evenly coated with the sauce. Add the croutons. Serve with some Parmesan sprinkled on top and a grinding of black pepper.
