Cherry Tomato Caesar Salad

, Lettuce
Spread the love

Whether the tomatoes deserve it or not, I make some version of a tomato Caesar salad every summer. Here, I inverted the usual proportions of lettuce to tomatoes, favoring the tomatoes. It was the juiciest of Caesars, and pretty, too, dotted with anchovies and curls of Parmesan.


  • 2

    garlic cloves, minced

  • ¼

    teaspoon fine sea salt

  • 2

    teaspoons fresh lemon juice

  • ¾

    teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 3

    tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 4

    crisp leaves romaine lettuce, thinly sliced

  • ½

    pound cherry tomatoes, preferably a mix of colors, halved

  • 4

    anchovies packed in oil, coarsely chopped

    and 1/2 ounces Parmesan, more to taste
