1 tsp anchovy paste
½ tsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
½ cup mayonnaise
3 tbsp Parmesan
For the turkey caesar salad
1 cup crusty bread, torn
6 baby gem lettuces
1½ cups shredded leftover turkey
¼ cup Parmesan
4 eggs, boiled and halved

For the dressing
1. Whisk together the anchovy paste, mustard, lemon juice, garlic and Worcestershire sauce.
2. Add the mayonnaise and Parmesan. Cover and refrigerate.
For the turkey caesar salad
1. Heat some olive oil in a pan and toast the chunks of bread, until golden brown. Season lightly and set aside to cool.
2. Arrange the lettuce leaves in a serving dish. Top with turkey, croutons and Parmesan.
3. Add the eggs and serve with the dressing on the side.

Tearing the bread apart with your hands instead of slicing it will give your croutons loads of extra texture and crunch, and the jagged edges will hold your flavourful dressing perfectly.
