Franky Cesar's Salad Recipe
Rhiannon Ally: It’s a Cesar’s salad recipe with an 80’s twist. The culinary duo behind the Frankies Spuntino, Frankie Falcinelli and Frank Castronovo shows us how to whip up classic dressing with a lot less fuss but with a lot of great flavor in today’s Better Bites.
Frankie Falcinelli: So we’re going to be demonstrating the Frankies Cesar salad.
Frank Castronovo: Frankies Cesar salad
Frankie Falcinelli: That’s special thing you know.
Frank Castronovo: Frankies Cesar salad is different from other Cesar salad.
Frankie Falcinelli: Yeah.
Frank Castronovo: Not your regular Cesar salad.
Frankie Falcinelli: As describe in the Frankies Spuntino in Kitchen Companion & Cooking Manual.
Frank Castronovo: Start up with a clean bowl.
Frankie Falcinelli: Start up with a clean large bowl. We’ve got our clean romaine lettuce, stems clean, looking good, mostly hearts. We’re going to cut it on an angle and turn it at the same time. Not really, kind of.
Frank Castronovo: Cutting the Cesar salad looks like spheres so that they lay out long in the plate.
Frankie Falcinelli: What a nice technique.
Frank Castronovo: Okay, now the Cesar salad dressing is something really special that Frank divides and somewhere in the 90’s.
Frankie Falcinelli: Some pepper.
Frank Castronovo: Yes the season salad dressing is actually a base of what real Cesar salad dressing are raw eggs, lemon juice, a little bit of vinegar, anchovies you know it’s a variety of different things. But basically, you’re starting making an olive oil mayonnaise. So what we did was instead of starting with an olive oil mayonnaise, we’ve started it off with almonds mayonnaise because we grew in the 80’s and grew up a lot of almonds mayonnaise and so we start with the almonds mayonnaise.
Frank Castronovo: Everybody loves almonds.
Frankie Falcinelli: Everybody loves almonds or for those of you are west of the rockies it’s best -- you know best mayonnaise. But we start with that, we start with a little water, some vinegar, anchovies, garlic, and parmesan cheese. So you’re left with the delicious creamy dressing. So we generously put them Cesar salad dressing on our spheres of romaine.
Frank Castronovo: By the way that Cesar salad dressing is also made for a great dip.
Frankie Falcinelli: We put some parmesan on there. I put some pepper in there and a little bit more.
Frank Castronovo: White pepper that is
Frankie Falcinelli: A little bit of salt. We take -- there it is. We mix it.
Frank Castronovo: And remember don’t squeeze the leaves and don’t break them because once you bruised them, you lose them.
Frankie Falcinelli: Some parmesan on top, a little fresh pepper on top and you’ve got a winning Cesar salad. It’s got a lot of flavor.
Frank Castronovo: Can we try this?
Frankie Falcinelli: It’s got a lot of zinc and it won’t kill you
Frank Castronovo: Is this good as it was the first time I ever had it?
Rhiannon Ally: That looks great. Cesar dressing is my favorite. For more great recipes from the two Franks, just pick up their new cookbook the Frankies Spuntino Kitchen Companion and Cooking Manual.
