Ceasar Salad

It's going to be a busy weekend in our house.

 We will be watching a lot of rugby along with all our usual weekend tasks. 
So simple dishes are a must. I've bought some beautiful steak from our local butcher 
and I will be serving them tonight with jacket potatoes and this easy salad. 
Hope you enjoy it.

Very simple side salad to serve with cooked chicken or steak

1 Cos lettuce - washed & ripped 
whole grain loaf sliced, toasted & cut into small cubes
 handful of pine nuts
few chunks of celery 

for the dressing

1 clove garlic
salt & pepper
juice & zest 1 lime
1 tablespoon mayo
2 tablespoons natural yogurt
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan

first make the dressing. Bash a clove of garlic with the salt & pepper in a pestle & mortar. Add the lime juice & zest along with the mayo, yogurt & Parmesan. Combine it all together & check for seasoning.

Assemble in a  large serving bowl in this order -  lettuce followed by the celery, dressing, bread, pine nuts and the shards of Parmesan.

serve immediately
