Caesar Salad Dressing

I love a Caesar salad with any Italian meal. For some reason the dressing and the romaine lettuce is a great side to a great Italian dish and this was perfect! I found this recipe on Food Network’s site and I like how deeply flavorful it was. This is much better than any bottled dressing and comes very close to authentic Italian recipes too!

ENJOY!

Salt
Pepper
Lemon juice
Minced anchovy fillets (optional)-I omitted
romaine lettuce
favorite croutons
parm cheese shreds

Directions:
Combine garlic, mustard, vinegar and two pinches of salt in a blender and mix thoroughly. Add mayonnaise and blend together to form a thick base. In a slow stream add olive oil through hole in lid. Scrape dressing with spatula into a bowl and season to taste with salt, pepper and lemon juice. If desired, add anchovy to dressing to create a deeper, saltier taste.
