Caesar Salad Dressing

Warning: Once you make your own Caesar Salad Dressing made from fresh ingredients, you may find it very difficult to go back to a store brand.

2 -3 Fresh Egg Yolks (depending on the size)
At least 2 Garlic Cloves (add more if you like. I use 4 or 5)
1/8-1/4 Cu. Lemon Juice
1/4-1/2 cu. Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp. Anchovy Paste
1/2 Cu. Olive Oil (Canola if you need a substitute)
Salt & Pepper to taste

Obviously this is a dressing that is to be played with according to your taste.

Separate eggs, and put yolks in blender with garlic cloves, and lemon juice. Blend. Add Parmesan Cheese, and anchovy paste. Blend again. I turn on the blender, and slowly add oil to emulsify. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Mark expiration date of eggs on jar or calendar.

The Farm

Here is a link to the farm that we volunteer on.

It's officially the Elma C. Lomax Incubator Farm. There are 11 or so farmers with their own projects going on that larger farm.

Enjoy, and check in on Aaron's blog often to see what's happening, and for some other yummy recipes.

Welcome, and grab your apron. "Pipi", my 10 year old daughter and I will be cooking with fresh, local, organic vegetables that we have either harvested from our own backyard, or from an incubator farm where we volunteer.

We hope you will enjoy the recipes we'll be making, and posting from the earth to the table.

Bon Apetit!
