Tijuana: Cecut & Cesars Salad

Cecut is the main museum and cultural center of not only Tijuana, but of Baja California. Jorge shows us around and gets in touch with the artistic and historical side of things. Afterward, Jorge samples the famous Caesar salad at the restaurant it was first invented at, right in Tijuana.

Caesar Salad Recipe:

1 head romaine lettuce
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tablespoon ground mustard
1 clove crushed garlic
Coddled egg
1 lime, juiced
Fresh ground black pepper
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 sliced baguette oven baked garlic croutons
6 Anchovy fillets

Clean lettuce thoroughly and refrigerate until crisp, at least 1 hour or more. In a wooden bowl, combine olive oil, mustard, Anchovies, garlic and part of the grated Parmesan. Whisk with a wooden paddle until it forms a paste.

Once cooled, crack the egg and whisk yolk into dressing until thoroughly blended. Add whole romaine lettuce leaves and gently roll them into the dressing. Serve on a platter and add the rest of the grated cheese, croutons, fresh ground pepper and salt to taste.
