It's Time To Get Fat. Real Fat!

Caesar Salad Chicken Fat Dressing

Who doesn't love a good, classic Caesar salad? Crunch, crispy, light and zesty...there's nothing better! To me, what makes a perfect Caesar is the dressing. It really can either make or break the salad. I've found that by using Schmaltz (aka chicken fat) as the base, it allows for a light yet creamy texture that doesn't overpower the salad and adds the perfect amount of flavor. You can serve the dressing right away for a lighter consistency or refrigerate for 2 hours for a creamier taste, both are equally as delicious!

DIRECTIONS

STEP 1

Add the egg and chicken fat into a mixing bowl and whisk briskly with a fork. Make sure the melted chicken fat has time to cool slightly before combining with egg so that the egg does not cook.

STEP 2

 Add remaining ingredients (except lettuce leaves) to mixing bowl, reserving about 1/3 cup cheese and beat with an immersion blender until well combined.

STEP 3

 Cover dressing and refrigerate for 2 hours for a thicker dressing or serve immediately for a lighter consistency.

STEP 4

 Drizzle dressing over lettuce garnished with chopped red onion, cheese, and edible flowers.
