Caesar Dressing Ingredients


  • 1/4 c cooked edamame, shelled
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized egg yolk(s)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp wasabi paste
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  1. Combine edamame, lemon juice, rice vinegar, sea salt, egg yolk, garlic, and wasabi paste in a blender and process until smooth. Gradually add olive oil to combine. Pour into glass jar and refrigerate until ready to use.

Grilled Shrimp

  • 1 lb wild-caught shrimp
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Chinese 5 spice to taste
  • 2 lemons, halved
  1. Butterfly shrimp by slicing almost through lengthwise, leaving shell on shrimp (this will keep shrimp tender while grilling over high heat).
  2. Brush shrimp with oil and season with Chinese 5 spice. Grill 2 minutes on each side, until shells are pink and shrimp is opaque.
  3. Place lemons on grill for the last minute. Remove from grill and set aside to serve with salad and squeeze over shrimp.


  • 1 head romaine lettuce, cleaned, dried, and chopped
  • 1/2 c thinly sliced radicchio
  • 2 oz thin vermicelli rice noodles, cooked
  • 1 c cooked edamame, shelled
  1. Combine romaine, radicchio, and noodles in large bowl. Divide among 4 plates. Top each plate with grilled shrimp and squeeze grilled lemon halves over shrimp. Sprinkle each salad with edamame. Serve immediately with Asian-inspired Caesar dressing on the side.

Pasteurized equals peace of mind

Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized eggs taste great and are safe for all your favorite egg dishes! Davidson's gentle water bath pasteurization reduces the risk of Salmonella in eggs without changing the nutrition or flavor. In fact, Davidson's pasteurized eggs have earned the Seal of Approval for exceptional flavor and culinary performance from the American Culinary Federation (ACF).

The Raw Egg Risk

Davidson's eggs aren't just good for sunny-side up or poached eggs. Consider all the recipes that feature raw eggs, like eggnog, Caesar salad dressing, raw cookie dough, custard and more. Take homemade ice cream, for example. Over a four-year period, more than 500 illnesses in the US were traced to Salmonella bacteria in homemade ice cream, according to the CDC. The ingredient at fault? Raw or undercooked eggs.
