I have no idea why I liked this salad so much, I just did. I’ve been eating salads almost daily for quite a while since my garden is overwhelming me, but this one was a meal and tasty and it really hit the spot. I want one every day for the next month.
An advert for a cooking show has been flashing past the TV screen lately (I almost never watch TV live and FF through all ads) and a scene of someone breaking into a runny, poached egg sitting atop a pile of greens catches my eye every time. Hubby said “that’s a Ceasar salad” (I don’t know that CSs have poached eggs on them but I’m game to go along with his assertion in this case). I said, “then make me one” (he does 99% of the meal prep – ain’t I lucky).
So he did. We picked every variety of greens we have going (Mazuna, Chinese mustard, bok choi, lettuce and I can’t remember what else), he made crutons from my home made sourdough bread, he poached 2 eggs laid in the morning by Isabel and Rosie (he declared Bronwyn’s too big), he grated large flakes of Parmesan cheese, and piled it all onto 2 plates. He then drizzled a simple dressing of balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, lemon and olive oil with salt and pepper on top of it all.
Wow! I could eat this every day.
