Caesar dressing is a classic that’s surprisingly easy to make from scratch! Chef Dez  has updated our classic recipe with from-scratch croutons, a new-and-improved dressing recipe, and of course BC eggs! We think you’ll agree it’s egg-ceptional!




  • 4 cups of 1/2-inch diced bread cubes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 dashes tabasco sauce
  • 3 canned anchovies
  • 2 to 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons dried dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup canola oil


  • 15 cups chopped Romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, divided
  • 6 large, hard-boiled eggs, chopped, sliced, or grated



  1. For the croutons: Preheat your oven to 400°F. Toss the bread cubes with the olive oil, basil, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a mixing bowl.
  2. Spread on a small baking sheet and bake approximately 12 minutes total (tossing them around at the 6-minute mark) until browned and crispy. Set aside.

Dressing & Salad

  1. Process the dressing ingredients, EXCEPT for the 1 cup canola oil, in a food processor.
  2. Then with the food processor running at top speed, gradually add the 1 cup canola oil in a very slow steady stream until fully incorporated and emulsified.
  3. In a large mixing bowl toss the 15 cups of chopped Romaine with the prepared dressing, and 1/2 cup of the grated Parmigiano-Reggiano. Portion into 6 large salad bowls.
  4. Garnish with the reserved croutons and prepared boiled eggs by dividing them equally on top of the 6 prepared salad portions. Garnish with the remaining 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano and serve immediately.


If you’re a bacon lover (and who isn’t?) feel free to add diced crispy bacon or crispy fried prosciutto as well!
