Tamarind Caesar Salad

Javier Gomez, the chef-owner of paladar Elite, took the concept of Caesar Salad and made it his own, using peppery organic greens. Anchovy fillets, Parmesan, and croutons align with classic versions, but the clever addition of sweet-sour tamarind to the dressing makes it unique. You might add a splash of fish sauce from the Snuk pantry.
