This tastes like you worked sooo hard to make a very authentic ceaser dressing. Nope, super easy. The secret is fish sauce. Fish sauce is a Vietnamese condiment and the main ingredient is anchovies. Think this is too good to be true? Try it and see for yourself!
2 scant Tablespoons Fish Sauce (scant means a little less than)
1 Tablespoon Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper or to taste
4 cups Romaine lettuce
½ cup or to taste finely shredded Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese
Whisk the first 5 ingredients together. Toss the lettuce with cheese and then pour on dressing and toss again. Add more pepper and/or cheese if desired.
I frequently prep all my ingredients in the morning or afternoon--I have shredded the cheese onto wax paper so it is ready to be stored until dinner time.
