Easy to make Caesar Dressing

h2Chef’s Note/h2
pNo need to go out to a restaurant to have a GREAT Caesar salad. I was as surprised as anyone to find out that the name of this dressing had little to do with ancient Rome. This dressing is traditionally made with anchovies, bit if you are one of the millions that can’t face them… don’t use them. It works out great… more for me. Back in the time when we did not think about salmonella, a raw egg was used to bind the dressing. Today I use a good quality mayonnaise in its place../p

h2Preparation/h2
pYou can do this any of three ways, in a bowl, in a jar, or at the table. If you are doing it at the table you start with an empty seasoned salad bowl. I frankly find it dramatic but too messy./p

liEither whisk together in the bowl, or shake the jar./li
liAdd remaining ingredients and combine well./li
