Avocado Caesar Salad

The romaine lettuce is doing so well in the greenhouse, that we just had to have a Caesar Salad.  While I like regular Caesar dressing, I figured that avocado could only make it better, and it did.

Avocado Caesar Salad


  • 1 head romaine and/or butter (Boston) lettuce, torn up
  • Avocado slices
  • Grated Romano or Parmesan cheese
  • Dressing
  • 1 large clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 small ripe avocado, pitted and peeled
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon (Meyer lemon, if you have one)
  • 1/2 TBSP grainy mustard
  • 1 tsp anchovy paste
  • 1/4-1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Place lettuce in a large salad bowl. Reserve avocado slices and cheese, until lettuce is dressed.
  2. Dressing
  3. In a small food processor, place garlic, and process to fine pieces. Add avocado and process to a puree.
  4. Add lemon, mustard, and anchovy and process again.
  5. Add oil, process, and taste. Add salt and pepper.
  6. Right before serving, toss lettuce with the dressing. Lay avocado slices on top, and sprinkle generously with cheese.
  7. We prefer no croutons.
