Fast & Easy Dinner: Corn and Red Pepper Caesar Salad

Fast & Easy Dinner: Corn and Red Pepper Caesar Salad


In order to make the classic Caesar salad worthy of a main dish, chicken is usually added. However you can make it a vegetarian friendly option by adding a bunch of fresh, chopped veggies instead. It's a crisp and delicious meal that pairs nicely with a chilled glass of Chardonnay. If you are fearful of Caesar dressings that include anchovies, you are in luck! This one is anchovy free! For the recipe please



Corn and Red Pepper Caesar Salad
From Vegetarian Times magazine

4 ears corn on the cob or 3 cups canned corn kernels, drained
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 medium-sized head romaine lettuce, leaves separated
4 large eggs
1 ½ cups garlic croutons
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
¾ cup olive oil
1 tsp. minced garlic, or to taste
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  1. If using fresh corn, carefully slice kernels from cobs and place in saucepan with water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, drain and rinse under cold water. Drain again and refrigerate until serving time.
  2. Meanwhile, cook eggs in rapidly boiling water for 7 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and run under cold water until cool. Peel and set aside until serving time.
  3. Trim off stem end of lettuce and rinse each leaf well. Dry thoroughly and break into bite-sized pieces. Place in salad bowl.
  4. To make dressing, whisk together 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese with olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, mustard and salt and pepper. Set aside.
  5. Add diced peppers and cooled corn to lettuce. Toss with croutons. Grate cooled eggs over top and toss with dressing. Garnish salad with remaining 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese and serve.

Serves 4.

Oops, apparently I was 1/2 right. While the original version does have anchovies, vegetarian versions are available. According to Wikipedia: Vegetarian and gluten free alternatives are available; the vegetarian variety omits the anchovies (notably Henderson's Relish). 'Life' Worcester sauce, produced by MH Foods (Morehands Ltd), is both vegetarian (no meat, no fish) and suitable for coeliacs (no gluten ingredients. Note: Lea & Perrins is also gluten free). Angostura also offers a fish-free sauce, but doesn't advertise itself as "vegetarian." There are also fish-free sauces produced for the Kosher market - not because anchovies aren't kosher, but because of an Orthodox prohibition on eating meat and fish together. These versions can then be used in recipes featuring meat. It appears that Worcester sauce powders are vegetarian. The powder produced by Nikken Foods contains no meat or fish[2], nor the one produced by Provesta Flavour Ingredient

Worcestershire sauce is made with anchovies, right? So, technically that part of the recipe would have to be changed for it to be vegetarian. Not trying to be picky....just didn't want someone trying to eat vegetarian to be unaware...

It sounds really good. I could go for a salad right now. All I have had today is coffee & some saltine crackers. I know, bad!

Caesar dressing without anchovies? Shame! Ken's makes the most awesome Caesar dressing - and I only know there are anchovies in it because I looked at the ingredient listing. This does look good though - easier than cooking the chicken and still has all the Caesar flavor. Yum!
