The Best Caesar Salad Ever

Using a head of Romaine lettuce, please wash the lettuce with the top facing down to get any dirt off it. Then place the head of lettuce on a cutting board and curt it length wise from the top to the bottom. I use a bread knife to do this.

Then place the ½ lettuce cut side down and cut it length wise into 3 pieces. Then holding the pieces together cut across the lettuce into 2” pieces all the way along the length of the lettuce. This will cut the lettuce into bite sized pieces, and make enough for 4 small salads. If you need more, just do the same with the other ½ lettuce head.

Please put the small pieces of lettuce in a large bow and shake some parmesan cheese on them. Stir the pieces with a pair of kitchen tongs, or a large spoon. Then add 2 large tablespoons of Renee’s Caesar salad dressing and 3 regular tablespoon of any bottled Caesar salad dressing.

Now is the time or the secret ingredient. Using a teaspoon please sprinkle 3 spoonfuls of Thai Fish Sauce over the lettuce. Tai Fish sauce is essentially liquid anchovies and gives the salad an extra flavor boost. Check before to see if any of your dinner guests is allergic to seafood.

Using the tongs or a large spoon, toss the salad to cover all the lettuce with the dressing. Then sprinkle more parmesan cheese over the top and add 1 cup of packaged crutons. Your guests will inhale the salad and ask for more.

Pizza Steak

This recipe is just too simple to make, while your steaks are on the grill, you can make this great topping for them. It can also be made in advance and stored in the fridge. In a large 12” skillet, please heat 2 tablespoons of oil heat to medium high. Then sprinkle ½ tsp of pepper and salt on the heated oil.

After about 1 minute the pepper will have bloomed and you can add one 12 oz can of chopped up tomatoes that you have drained. Give them a stir for about 3 minutes, then add 2 tablespoons of dried oregano, 1 tablespoon of garlic powder, and if you have it, one teaspoon of dried basil leaves.

Continue to stir the mixture over medium heat for about 10 minutes and the mixture thickens. Then take two generous table spoons of the mixture and top each steak. Your guests will cut into the steak and get a taste of pizza followed immediately by a taste of BBQ steak.
