Cooking description

Cerar salad has a variety of options, some with tomatoes, some with olives and lemon slices, some with shrimp and other seafood. But the essential ingredients of this salad are chicken and egg. Lettuce leaves add brightness to the dish. To further diversify the flavor and add color, I also put tomato slices in the salad. The dressing of the Caesar salad is very important, its correct preparation probably means more than the composition of the salad itself. Caesar salad dressing is truly unique and original, it consists of fresh egg, lemon juice, garlic, mustard, olive oil or Worcestershire sauce. Nowadays, it is very rare to prepare a dressing for Caesar salad with an egg, more and more often they use only lemon juice, mustard and olive oil. This is exactly what I suggest is the option,

For lunch / For dinner / For a banquet table
