1/3 cup (1 1/3 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
How to Make It
Drop the garlic halves through the opening in blender lid with blender on; process until minced. Add mayonnaise and the next 5 ingredients (mayonnaise through pepper); process until well-blended. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.
Combine oil, Cajun seasoning, and minced garlic in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at high for 20 seconds. Add bread cubes; toss gently to coat. Spread bread cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet; bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Place lettuce in a large bowl. Add dressing; toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with cheese, and top with croutons.
This is one of my go-to recipes. The dressing is delicious, and the croutons with the blackening seasoning give the salad just the right amount of zip. Add grilled chicken for a super summer salad out on the deck or patio!
This review is only for the dressing: great dressing! I used regular Worcestershire sauce because until today I had never even heard of white wine Worce. sauce. I also couldn't find anchovy paste at my local store so I used anchovies. I like anchovies so I added about 6-7 plus about 75% of the oil in the can and you could definitely taste the anchovies in it. I will definitely use this recipe again.
This recipe was awesome!! I almost used a commercial cajun mix, but realized this one was quite simple to make so I made it quickly and it was soooo worth it. Croutons were flavorful and added that restaurant flare. The dressing was delicious and I still don't believe how low can it is. Made this for a dinner party and everyone seemed to like it...I will definitely be using this as my regular Caesar dressing!
