The Restaurant: Biscayne Tavern
The Dish: Kale Caesar Salad
2 egg yolks
1/4 cup of lemon juice
1/4 cup of sherry vinegar
1 tsp. of dry mustard
6 garlic gloves
10 anchovies with capers
1 Tbs. of worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. of sriracha hot sauce
1/2 tsp. of ground black pepper
1/4 cup of parmesan cheese
1 cup of salad oil
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
chopped tuscan black kale (as desired)
sun-dried tomatoes (as desired)
croutons or flatbread (as desired)
Method of Preparation:
-Start by making the caesar dressing. In a blender, add egg yolk, lemon juice, sherry vinegar, dry mustard powder, garlic cloves and canned anchovies with capers.
-Next, add worcestershire sauce, sriracha hot sauce, black pepper and parmesan cheese and blend it all together.
-As the ingredients are being blended, slowly pour in regular salad oil and half a cup of extra virgin olive oil.
-After, wash and dry the kale. Then, remove the stem and chop it up.
-Marinate the kale with a drizzle of olive oil and fresh lemon juice. Let it sit for about an hour. This will add flavor and help soften the kale.
-Lastly, toss the salad with the caesar dressing. At the restaurant, they like to add smoked sun-dried tomatoes.
Top the kale caesar salad with baked flat bread and parmesan cheese.
