Flecked with anchovies and lemon zest, this bright dressing has flavors in common with the classic Caesar, but the mint, parsley, and chives take it to a whole new place. Toss it with leaves of romaine.


  • 3 finely chopped oil-packed anchovy fillets

  • ½ cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives (or scallion)

  • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • ¼ teaspoon coarse salt

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper


  1. Shake together anchovy fillets, parsley, olive oil, mint, chives, vinegar, zest, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
