Ingredients
  • Croutons:
  • 3 cups of cubed french bread
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • Caesar Dressing:
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 anchovy fillet or ½ tsp anchovy paste
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • Brussels sprouts:
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 5 cups of shaved brussels sprouts (pro tip: you can buy them pre-shaved from Trader Joe's!)
  • 1½ tsp kosher salt
  • Assembly:
  • 3 pieces of bacon, cooked
  • 1 half lemon
  • 2 tbsp shaved parmesan
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. On a baking sheet, toss cubed bread with butter and salt. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until crunchy all the way through and browning on the outside.
  3. To make the dressing, add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse until smooth.
  4. Begin heating a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil, then the brussels sprouts and salt. Toss to coat and reduce heat to medium low. Saute until softened, but still crunchy, about 10 minutes.
  5. Add brussels sprouts to a large salad bowl. Pour desired amount of dressing onto the brussels - you'll have some dressing leftover. Squeeze the half of lemon over the brussels. Break bacon into pieces and add to the salad bowl. Toss to coat.
  6. Top salad with croutons and shaved parmesan. Serve.
