When I am eating fatfree I really miss Caesar salad. I won't
pretend this recipe tastes exactly or even a lot like Caesar
salad, because it doesn't. But it is at least reminiscent of
it, and I think it's tasty whether it's like Caesar or not.
Nikki and David Goldbeck's Caesar salad recipe, from American
Wholefoods Cuisine, was the jumping-off point, although I'm not
sure they'd recognize the end result.
1-4 cloves garlic, to taste, chopped
(I used 4 and it was hot and garlicky)
4 T fresh lemon juice
1 T capers including the brine
4 T chickpeas
4 T additional chickpea can or cooking liquid
2 tsp tamari, or to taste - depends on salt in beans
additional capers for garnish
Blend everything except the last three items until only tiny
pieces of chickpea are visible. (I used a Braun hand-blender).
Toss Romaine lettuce with mixture. Garnish with the capers and
fresh ground black pepper and croutons. Makes somewhere around 1
