Caesar Salad with Pine Nuts

Caesar Salad with Pine nuts


  • 2 romaine hearts, cut or torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan for garnish
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • Dressing
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup olive oil


  1. Toast the pine nuts in a sauté pan over medium heat until lightly browned, 5-10 minutes.
  2. Place all ingredients except lemon juice and oil in a blender. Blend on low until combined.
  3. With blender on low, pour in lemon juice then slowly drizzle olive oil into dressing, increasing speed to medium. Blend dressing until thick and creamy.
  4. Toss romaine with dressing and place in serving bowl. Sprinkle pine nuts and remaining 1/4c parmesan over salad. Serve immediately with freshly ground black pepper.


Just as a side note; this recipe can be made without the parmesan, making it dairy free. It won’t be a traditional Caesar but it will taste good that way as well.
