everyone has such a favorite recipe, which is always an alternative if, for example, (again) you don’t find anything on the menu. For me, the Caesar salad is such an all-rounder. Hardly anyone can do anything wrong and it always tastes good. At least that’s my experience.
For example, if we get a salad during lunch break, my decision is usually made for the Caesar salad. If Alex and I want to eat salad at home, the Caesar Salad is usually served. And when I ask my loved ones which salad they would like to eat for barbecuing, the Caesar salad comes into a discussion more than any other salad. Somehow we all like it.
Now I wanted to bring a pasta salad for grilling. The ingredients were ready, pasta was cooked. But then my dear friend wrote to me “Can’t you bring me your delicious Caesar salad?” Oh, damn it. Ahem, of course, no problem at all.
It wasn’t, because why shouldn’t a pasta caesar salad taste good too? So we changed everything again, the loved one went to the supermarket around the corner and was ready, the dressing and the salad were prepared.
Speaking of dressing. I’m not a big fan of Majo and if the dressing wasn’t generally so tasty, I would probably always leave it out. Then when I do the Caesar dressing at home, I have found a good alternative. The solution: yogurt. Yogurt, spice, and a few other things and the dressing are small but less important delicious. Also: uncontrolled effects.
