"Here's my recipe to make the best-tasting Caesar salad ever," relates Dorothy Smith of El Dorado, Arkansas. Pepperoni slices add a spicy spin to the classic combination of crisp romaine and crunchy croutons in a garlic dressing.


  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 cups torn romaine
  • 4 ounces halved sliced pepperoni (about 1 cup)
  • 1-1/2 cups Caesar salad croutons
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. In a small bowl, whisk the oil, vinegar, mayonnaise, garlic, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and pepper; set aside.
  2. In a large salad bowl, combine romaine and pepperoni. Drizzle with dressing; toss to coat. Sprinkle with croutons and Parmesan. Serve immediately.
