A great Caesar salad gets its swagger froma great dressing. Squeamish about rawegg yolks and anchovies? Sorry. Yolks arewhat give richness to the emulsion, whileanchovies provide a briny blast (and thatwhole umami thing). Here's our go-to recipe:Chop together 6 anchovy fillets packedin oil, 1 small garlic clove, and a pinch ofkosher salt. Use the side of a knife bladeto mash into a paste, then scrape into amedium bowl.
Whisk in 2 large egg yolks*,2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, and 3/4 teaspoon
Adding drop by drop to start,gradually whisk in 2 tablespoons olive oil, then1/2 cup vegetable oil; whisk until dressing isthick and glossy.
Whisk in 3 tablespoons finelygrated Parmesan. Season with salt, freshlyground black pepper, and more lemonjuice, if desired. Can be made 1 day ahead.
Make your own. Tearing, not cutting,the bread ensures nooks and crannies thatcatch the dressing and add texture. Toss3 cups torn 1" pieces country bread with3 tablespoons olive oil on a baking sheet; seasonwith kosher salt and freshly ground blackpepper.
Bake at 375°F, tossing occasionally,until golden, 10-15 minutes.
Use whole leaves from 3 romaine heartsto feed 6 people. They provide the ideal mixof crispness, surface area, and structure.

Parmesan may look impressive, but all thatclumpy cheese mutes the dressing. Instead,use a vegetable peeler to thinly shave amodest amount on top for little salty bursts.
Skip the tongs. Use your hands to gentlytoss the lettuce, croutons, and dressing,then top off with the shaved Parm.
