Gordon Ramsay’s Big Caesar Salad Recipe

I haven’t really tried many Gordon Ramsay recipes and the Big Caesar Salad Recipe was developed for his homecooking programme. It’s definitely the best recipe I have tried so far and has my highest review score rating of 7.75/10

Level of difficulty

There was nothing complicated about the recipe, although there were quite a few elements to juggle, to pull it all together.  The recipe specifies that olive oil should be added until the mixture emulsifies, if you don’t know what this means then you might have difficulties.

8/10

Time taken to prepare

This took about 30 minutes to prepare, mainly because there is lots going on.  It’s definitely worth taking the time with this recipe, as it really adds to the flavours.

7/10

The food

The croutons were great in this recipe, probably the best recipe for croutons so far. Cooking the chicken this way is quick and still leaves the chicken very juicy.  The dressing was more of a mayonnaise than a caesar and the vinegar was quite distinctive.  The lemon juice should be used sparingly.

8/10

I really enjoyed this recipe.  There was a lot to do, but it is well worth it, if you have the time. The recipe does contain raw egg yolk, so probably best avoid it if your pregnant.  I would definitely try it again.

Good Housekeeping Chicken Caesar Salad

I was brought up with Good Housekeeping recipes, so I was really pleased to see that they have a Chicken Caesar Salad recipe.

This was a very simple recipe, although the chicken needed to be pre-cooked as this isn’t included in the recipe.  The recipe does contain uncooked egg, so if you aren’t keen uncooked eggs you can use mayonnaise.

Level of difficulty

The recipe was very simple, but did require a food processor for the dressing. 7/10

Time taken to prepare

It only took about 10 minutes to prepare (as long as the chicken is pre-cooked).  The dressing took the longest. 7/10

The food

The chicken was fairly plain and could probably have done with more seasoning.  The croutons were very crunchy and frying them was definitely a nicer way to prepare them than in the oven.   The dressing was what stood out for me, the mustard was very discernible and for me this was the most authentic caesar dressing so far.   6/10

 

Overall

The main ingredients of the salad didn’t really stand out, although the croutons worked well.  For me the dressing was what made this recipe and I would definitely make it again. 7/10
