Best Caesar Salad

Published September 1, 1997.

Why this recipe works:

For a Caesar salad recipe that does not rely on raw eggs, we found that either a coddled egg, boiled for 45 seconds, or soft tofu gave us the best texture and flavor.

Serves 4 to 6 as a first course

If you don't own a garlic press, chop the garlic for both the croutons and dressing by hand; sprinkle it with the salt and then continue mincing it until it is almost pureed. The garlic and anchovies in the dressing are optional but strongly recommended. Without them, the salad is a bit bland. For Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad, add two grilled boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced crosswise into half-inch strips, to the salad along with the cheese.
