Homemade Caesar Salad 

Let’s see how we can easily and quickly make homemade Caesar salad.

List of Ingredients

Below are some ingredients you’ll need to prepare this recipe.

For croutons

  • Crusty bread – 2 large slices, each measuring about ¾ inch
  • Fine salt – 1/4 teaspoon
  • Olive oil – 2 tablespoons 
  • Garlic Powder – 1/8 teaspoon
  • Black pepper powder, to taste

For salad dressing

  • Mayonnaise – 1/2 cup
  • Lemon juice – 2 teaspoons to taste
  • Minced garlic clove – 1 medium-sized
  • Dijon mustard – 1 teaspoon
  • Worcestershire sauce – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Fine salt – 1/8 teaspoon
  • Finely shredded Parmesan cheese – 1/3 cup
  • Water – 1 tablespoon
  • Black pepper powder, to taste

Other ingredients

  • Finely grated Parmesan – 1/3 cup
  • Roughly chopped romaine lettuce – 2 medium heads 


Let’s see the process step-by-step.

Step 1

To prepare this recipe, we used the best oven. Set the oven temperature to 400°F and prepare a large, rimmed parchment-paper-covered baking sheet to make cleanup easier. Using paper towels, line a plate, then keep it aside.

Step 2

To make the croutons, carefully cut the bread into ¾ inch cubes with a sharp blade, or if it’s simpler, tear it into pieces of that size with your fingers. Place the bread slices on the already prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle garlic powder, a small pinch of black pepper powder, and salt. After giving the bread a light oil coating with your hands, place the slices of bread evenly on the baking pan.

Step 3

Bake the croutons for 10-12 minutes, stirring after 5 minutes, until they are beginning to turn golden brown yet still have a little chew in the middle. In order to soak up extra oil, take the croutons out of the oven and place them on the prepared platter. After cooling, add more salt and pepper if needed and season to taste.

Step 4

To make the salad dressing, combine the mayonnaise, Dijon, garlic, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and salt in a measuring cup or bowl. Stir everything together. Add the water last, then the Parmesan. To taste, season with black pepper.

Step 5

Assemble the salad when you’re ready to serve it. In a big salad bowl, add the prepared romaine. Add the croutons on top. Over the salad, drizzle the dressing, and then top with the grated Parmesan. Mix the lettuce gently in the dressing, then add the remaining cheese as a garnish. As the croutons and lettuce will soften with time, it is best to serve the salad right away.
