CAESAR DRESSING


Creating Caesar dressing is a breeze with essential ingredients. Start by placing six anchovies in oil (optional), two egg yolks, three garlic cloves, and 1/4 cup of lemon juice into a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Then, incorporate two teaspoons of Dijon mustard, 1/2 cup of olive oil, and 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese, pulsing until the dressing is consistently smooth. Refrigerate until you're ready to enjoy it.


CIABATTA CROUTONS


Making croutons from leftover ciabatta bread is quite simple. Here's a basic recipe to try.

Preheat your oven to 375°F. Cut the ciabatta bread into bite-sized cubes. You can remove the crust if you prefer. Place the bread cubes in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil, and toss them to coat evenly. You want enough oil to coat each piece lightly. Season the bread cubes with salt, pepper, and other desired seasonings like garlic powder or herbs. Toss again to distribute the seasonings evenly. Spread the seasoned bread cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until the croutons are golden brown and crisp, tossing them halfway through the baking time for even browning. Once done, remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the croutons cool completely. Once cooled, store the croutons in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. These homemade ciabatta croutons are perfect for adding crunch and flavor to salads and soups or topping various dishes. Enjoy!
