look, nothing get’s a woman more turned on than a man with skills in the cooking department. here’s a simple, universal recipe that make woman melt with tingles. never underestimate food game. you don’t have to be fancy, as this easy and quick to make salad proves. it’s simple, and it’s HOME-MADE. i’ve NEVER had anyone try my caesar salad and not want the recipe. and it’s actually healthy for you. add it to your repertoire, and dazzle that cutie that’s sipping on a glass of wine while making dinner in jeans and a t-shirt. trust me, she’ll be removing it later. lol.
when i was 15 i bussed tables at Chateau Estates country club, a VERY upscale CC in kenner. my parents are still members. well, on wednesday it was “family day”, meaning there was a buffet. the signature dish was caesar salad. never had it before, and one waiter in particular made the dressing from scratch. even though i was just 15 at the time, i had already started building my culinary proficiency. the first time i tried the dressing i wanted to learn how to make it. Martin was the dude that did the dressing (yes, STILL remember his name), and he ran me through the process.
well, one wednesday- Martin called out. the maitre’d was in a panic. when i told him Martin had taught me the recipe i was instructed to whip up a batch. it was the same, precise taste. the waiters were told to bus their own tables and that i were to be making the salads that night.
i did ok. no complaints, and the night went off without a hitch. Martin was BEAMING at my talent, and to this day i recall the recipe. it is NOT for the faint of heart as it contains a SCARY ingredient. but it’s MONEY. let’s get to it.
you will need-
2 egg yolks, JUST the yolks
3-4 TBS dijon mustard (more or less to taste)
2-3 cloves minced fresh garlic
juice of half a lemon (again- more or less to taste)
pinch of sea salt
3-4 anchovy fillets mashed into a paste (or 1 TBS anchovy paste)
mix the above until well blended, then add 1 cup olive oil. mix well and pour over romaine lettuce. top with parmesan cheese (i don’t like croutons, but feel free to use ‘um if you like).
take one chicken breast (2 if you’re cooking for you and a chick) and season with….NOTHING. if you MUST, season with kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper. the star here is the dressing, so need to change the flavor with extra ingredients. cook it up normal about 3-4 mnutes per side over med high heat. let it sit for 10 minutes before slicing to let the juices redistribute. slice into strips and place atop the salad that has already had the dressing added. enjoy, and watch her tingle as she destroys her salad.
the great thing is, the ingredients are GOOD for you. this is truly a healthy salad. NEVER had anyone complain about my CCS. so make that shit. play around with it and tweak it to your taste. that’s the great thing about cooking, it’s not quantum physics….it’s MEANT to be tinkered with.
