Gordon Ramsay’s ultimate Caesar salad
Gordon Ramsay is right – the Caesar salad is a classic, but as the chef says to make it modern you have to add a twist while not losing what made it classic in the first place. Ramsay starts with the dressing – egg yolk, Dijon and a splash of red wine vinegar. After whisking, he adds olive oil with anchovies and crushed garlic, grated parmesan, lemon juice and some water. Then Ramsay goes further with a charred chicken breast.
