For the sesame caesar salad
Mound anchovies and garlic on a cutting board. With the side of a chef’s knife, mash together until a smooth paste forms.
Transfer paste to a large bowl and squeeze in juice from 1 lemon half (about 2 tbsp). Whisk in tahini, mustard, and 2 tbsp water. Gradually whisk in oil until dressing is thick and glossy. Whisk in 3 tbsp Parmesan; season with salt and pepper.
Add lettuce, tearing any large leaves, to bowl with dressing, along with pear slices. Season with salt and toss until leaves are coated.
Transfer salad to a platter and top with more Parmesan and sesame seeds. Finely grate zest of half the lemon.
