How To Cook With Leftovers For Thanksgiving: Serve A Sexy Caesar Salad

10:11 PM How was the first Thanksgiving inspiration for you? I am still dreaming about my lovely apple latkes and I can't stop talking and just thinking about food. Period. 
I love food. 
Especially during the holidays.

But yeah, I get you, too, if you say that too much crazy cooking is just too much. 
I want it simple.
I want to focus on classics and not spending hours in the kitchen. I get it.

Holidays make us spend so much more cash, even though there's plenty of stuff in our fridges which we could easily use and create something magical with. 
That's why my second perfect idea for Thanksgiving is a leftover classic:

A Caesar salad.
Do you like Caesar salad? I know you do.
That's why this is the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving menu.
A fresh and green delicatess with the right amount of acid, garlic, and cheese. Isn't this what everyone likes?
Yes, of course.

And it's so simple.
No stress, more happiness. 


YOU NEED 2 tablespoons mustard + 1/3 Cup oil + anchovy fillet + 1 garlic clove + ground black pepper + salt + 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice + 2 tablespoons mayonnaise + parmesan cheese + 2 romaine hearts + extra croutons if you wish 

1. Finely grate 1 garlic clove into reserved bowl with a microplane.
2. Place 1 anchovy (if you’re a fan of anchovies and want to taste them in the dressing, use 2) on a cutting board and mash into a paste with the flat side of a chef's knife. Add to bowl with garlic.
3. Whisk 2 Tbsp. mustard, 2 Tbsp. lemon juice, and 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise into bottom of bowl until mixture is incorporated.
4. Whisking constantly, slowly stream in ⅓ Cup oil. Continue whisking vigorously until you have a thick, creamy, smooth dressing.
5. Using a vegetable peeler, shave 3 oz. Parmesan into shards, then break up any larger pieces with your fingertips.
6. Tear 2 romaine hearts into bite-sized pieces directly into bowl with dressing. Season lightly with salt, then generously with pepper.
7. Add the cheese to the salad and toss gently with clean hands until lettuce is coated. If romaine hearts were small and salad looks a little overdressed, add some more romaine heart.

Easy peasy.
You totally got this.
This is the perfect recipe you can actually eat every damn day, because it's so damn yummy.
Even better, you can update and pimp your salad depending the season. Pumpkin, pomegranate, orange, strawberry, or asparagus. The world is yours!
What a nice recipe to try right now! 
I can already taste it on my lips...

*Oh hey, I just wondered what garlic means in German. Impress your guests with garlic — Knoblauch.

*Boys and girls, write down the new vocabulary you have learned today: Käse — cheese.
