Introduction

In Forever Summer (from which this and the following recipes are all adapted) I unveiled my version of a Caesar Cleopatra which is (as I learnt from a visit to the food court of a Los Angeles shopping mall) what a Caesar salad with chicken is properly called, however improper you might find the innovation. Given the magisterial greatness of the turkey, I have renamed my leftover version a Caesar Augustus. I like to add avocado, but if you don't have one to hand I wouldn't lose sleep over it.

  • Tear the lettuce into large chunks and arrange on a plate.
  • Mix up the dressing by whisking the egg yolk in a bowl and carry on whisking as you add the oil slowly. Whisk again, adding the lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce.
  • Pour this dressing over the lettuce, then toss well, preferably with your hands, so that all the leaves are coated. Sprinkle over two tablespoons of the parmesan and toss again. Add the turkey bits to the salad, along with the sliced avocado half, if you're using it.
  • Toss once more, then sprinkle over the final tablespoon of parmesan.
