Untraditional Caesar salad recipe

Chef Pamela Gould shares her signature dish


Known for its great hunks of meat, Hunters shows its softer side by putting a twist on this staple starter.

The recipe

(Serves two)
Caesar rolls
• 1kg romaine lettuce
• 200g white radish

Caesar dressing
• 1 egg
• 75ml grape seed oil
• 25g marinated anchovies
• 25ml sherry vinegar
• 15g grain mustard
• 30g parmesan cheese

Parmesan purée
• 150g grated parmesan cheese
• 75ml water
• 50g maltodextrin powder (optional)
• Splash of olive oil

• One baguette for croutons
• Lemon cress
• 100g marinated anchovies


1 Wash the romaine lettuce, removing the main vein from the middle.
2 Thinly slice the radish lengthways (Chinese mandolin would be best) and roll to make two-inch stacks.
3 Place all the parmesan purée ingredients in the food processor and blend well.
4 Slice the baguette lengthways and wrap around a stainless steel round mould, then bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 10 minutes to form the croutons needed.
5 For the dressing, blend all ingredients together and slowly add oil.
6 Inject the dressing into the stack, place a few dollops of purée around the plate, and then add the freshly baked croutons, lemon cress and marinated anchovies before serving.
