Caesar salad

The salad’s creation is generally attributed to restaurateur Caesar Cardini, an Italian immigrant who operated restaurants in Mexico and the United States. The original Caesar salad recipe did not contain pieces of anchovy; the slight anchovy flavor comes from the Worcestershire sauce. Cardini was opposed to using anchovies in his salad.

Preparation time 10 minutes


  • leftovers from roasted Christmas duck
  • 1 sachet lettuce
  • 40 g Parmezaan in large flakes
  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 can of anchovies
  • 1 lime
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 hard boiled egg
  • 1 cup of croutons
  • salt & pepper


After Christmas dinner remain from the duck only leftovers. It wasn’t enough for separate portions, so I used them as ingredient in a new salad. And it was worth it.

For the sauce, mix the mayonnaise, anchovies, lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, hard boiled egg and pepper with a little olive oil until smooth.

Cut the lettuce into bite-sized pieces, wash and dry them. Mix the salad with the dressing and serve. Add the Parmesan cheese, leftovers from roast duck (or chicken) and add the croutons and serve.
