Chicken Caesar Salad

We received the biggest most beautiful head of romaine lettuce in our farm share box last week! I couldn't wait to make something with it!  What better than a Caesar salad?!?!

Often times, when we visit our friends in Chicago, they will make us the most amazing Caesar salad so I called them up to get the recipe!  Some of you may be grossed out by the fact that it has a raw egg in it, but if you can overcome that, you will just love it! I could eat this salad every day! We also grilled some chicken breasts to slice up and put on top of the salad. It was a meal in itself and oh so good!

3 or more cloves garlic, minced
1/4 c. olive oil

1 whole egg (or you can use Egg Beaters)
1/8 t. salt
fresh ground pepper
1/3 c. fresh lemon juice
3 squirts of Worcestershire sauce
2/3 c. freshly grated parmesan cheese

In a small bowl, mix together olive oil and minced garlic. Let garlic soak in the olive oil while you prepare remaining ingredients.

In a separate bowl, beat 1 egg. Add salt, pepper, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and parmesan cheese. Whisk together until well combined.

Wash and dry romaine lettuce. Chop or tear into large, bite size pieces. Toss romaine with the oil/garlic mixture; then pour on the egg/cheese mixture and toss until well combined.  Optional: Add grilled chicken on top!
