LAW Caesar Dressing

Years ago some restaurants would make a table side Caesar salad, it was an art. Crushed garlic, olive oil, eggs, lemon, anchovies (Yes anchovies) all combine to make the perfect compliment to crispy romaine, shredded parm and croutons. I had all but given up finding the REAL thing in today's world. Then I tried Lassen Ale Works. Oh. My. I call ahead an order for this delectable salad from the LAW Boardroom, dressing on the side and swing by on the way home. 

I cannot believe owners Margaret and Erik were so generous to share the recipe. I know they're super generous when it comes to community involvement. So much goodness is hosted at both locations; Symphony, art, upcoming trail work, Rotary, Rick and I even had a 90th birthday party for a friend at the Boardroom. Delicious food, great ambiance, LAW   at the Pioneer and the Boardroom have it all. But recipes? This is a whole other territory. When I shared Grandma Stewart's Persimmon Cookie recipe one woman said her family would disown you for such a thing! A lot of well kept secrets out there. 




Erik is currently serving Lassen Land Trails Trust as President. Wouldn't it be awesome to put this Caesar Salad in a wrap and head out on one of our trails? Thanks to the work of LLTT and so many others you have tons of options! I stopped by the Depot and picked up a couple of maps AND nuggets of info about proposed extensions through Fredonyer, Westwood and even Lake Almanor. Be sure to check out what they have to offer plus LLTT always needs your support. 

Here is the Best Darn Caesar Dressing on the Planet courtesy of Lassen Ale Works~
2 tbs kosher salt
8 cloves garlic, smashed
24 anchovy filets, rinsed
1 cup egg yolks (14)
1/4 cup water, or as needed
Fresh ground pepper to taste
Combine yolks, salt, garlic, anchovies in a food processor, pulse until eggs are airy. Continue adding ingredients and processing as you go. Add vinegar and lemon juice. Slowly drizzle oil. Add water as needed when mixture gets too thick. 

You're gonna need to cut it down just a bit since it's restaurant size or better yet, let them make it for you!

LAW, thanks for all you do to make Lassen County fun, festive and DEEEElicious!
