Servings 6 servings


  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds Toasted
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon minced lemongrass* Frozen
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 head Romain Torn into pieces
  • 1 cup shaved Parmesan


  • Heat heavy small skillet over medium-low heat. Add sesame seeds and stir until toasted and golden, about 3 minutes. Set aside. (optionally buy these already toasted)
  • Combine lime juice and next 6 ingredients in processor; process until well blended. With processor running, add vegetable oil in slow stream; process until slightly thickened. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Place lettuce in large bowl. Add dressing and Parmesan; toss to combine. Divide salad among plates; sprinkle with remaining Parmesan and toasted sesame seeds.



Serve the dressing on the side to make both styles of Caesar Salad.  We prefer Kens dressing over other brands. *Lemongrass can be purchased already minced in the frozen section of your Asian market.
