Description

Caesar salad with avocado, cucumbers, crunchy croutons, and Greek yogurt caesar dressing. It’s one of my favorite all time salad combos!


Scale

Ingredients

Salad

  • 8 oz. baguette (about 1/2 baguette)
  • 1 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 23 medium heads of romaine lettuce, rinsed, patted dry, and chopped or torn into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 English cucumber or 4 persian cucumbers, thinly sliced¬†
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • Freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt and fresh black pepper

Dressing

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt, whole milk
  • 2 tsp. anchovy paste or 2 canned anchovies
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp. shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • Kosher salt and fresh black pepper

Instructions

  1. Prepare the dressing: add all ingredients to a bowl of a food processor. Season mixture with salt and pepper, to taste. Pulse until combined. Refrigerate the dressing in an airtight container while you prepare the croutons and the salad. Mix gently before serving and taste for salt and pepper.
  2. Prepare the croutons: pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Tear the baguette into bite size pieces; toss with butter and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Spread onto a large sheet pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden crisp. Remove from oven and let cool.
  3. Prepare the salad: in a large salad bowl, toss romaine lettuce, cucumbers, and half of the croutons with desired amount of dressing. Top with sliced avocado, remaining croutons, and Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.

Notes

  1. The dressing can be refrigerated for up to 1 week in an airtight container. It will thicken the longer it sits. Add 1-2 tablespoons of milk to thin out the dressing.
