When it comes to Caesar Salad many of us try it over the years. Some recipe we liked and some not. What makes a really good salad is the dressing. To have a nice tasty dressing you need to have a good Italian Chef to share the recipe with you. I like my dressing to be full of flavor, a bit tangy and extra creamy. This simple recipe gets high marks across the board and bonus, it’s quick to make! A really great Caesar should be unapologetically packed with bold umami flavors. We’re talking whole anchovies (yes, they are the essential starring ingredient in modern Caesar dressing and cannot be missed), raw egg yolks (also traditional), spicy raw garlic, tangy Dijon, salty Parmesan, freshly-squeezed lemon juice, a generous seasoning of sea salt and black pepper, and of course, lots of good-quality olive oil. Here is my recipe that one of the Italian Chef’s share with me when we work together at Four Seasons many years ago. What makes it better is when you put together this favorite salad with chicken on a tortilla and whapped for a quick delicious lunch. If you want to make it more excided you can add some avocado and tomatoes. I call this Italian burrito- Where Italy and Mexico meet in the middle:).

Make the dressing by blending the egg yolks, garlic, anchovies and mustard. Slowly add the oil, whisking constantly.
When the oil is well emulsified, add the lemon juice and stir to combine.
Stir in the Parmesan cheese and pepper. The consistency should be between a mayonnaise and a dressing. what is good about this dressing is that you can keep it in mason jar and store it in the fridge for a couple of weeks.
washed and cut the Lettuce and put it in a bowl. Add the dressing, cut chicken and croutons. Mix well. or you can add all the ingredients in a bowl and use the emergency blender.
I like to chard my tortilla on the open gas stove for a few second on both sides. It gives the wrap different flavor.
Its time to assemble the wrap. On a board or plate put the slightly grill tortilla, scoop some of the Caesar salad and add some extra parmesan cheese. Also you can add a avocado and corn to make it more decadent. This is a easy lunch to make on the go.
