Caesar is one of the trickiest salads. The dressing is a balancing act, and despite anchovies and grated cheese, a little salt usually is needed to unite the flavors. This is a first-rate rendition of this salad, which was created in a restaurant in Tijuana and passionately adopted by San Franciscans.
Combine half of the anchovies and garlic in a bowl. Add all of the vinegar, salt, pepper to taste, and the 1/3 cup olive oil. Let stand for 20 minutes.
Toss the bread cubes with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and a pinch of salt. Spread on a cookie sheet and toast in a 300 degrees
oven until golden, about 10 minutes.
At serving time, add the remaining anchovies and garlic, the lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of the cheese to the dressing base. Whisk in the
eggs to form an emulsion. Thoroughly toss the lettuce leaves with the dressing, being careful not to bruise them. Taste for salt and add, if necessary. Divide the salad among chilled serving plates. Add the croutons, dust with more freshly ground pepper and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
Editor's note: According to recent studies, uncooked eggs may not be safe since, in rare instances, they may carry salmonella.
