I was looking for a recipe for Caesar Salad dressing and found this one. The ingredients were consistent with what I was looking for, so I gave it a try. Very good - I made it for a crowd and received lots of compliments. A few things I did differently: First, I made a paste of the crushed garlic and kosher salt by mashing the garlic and salt together with the back of a spoon. Secondly, I omitted the cayenne (not a fan of hot) and anchovies (wasn't sure about the tastes of the crowd, so thought I'd play it safe) and substituted a bit of anchovy paste instead. Will add more next time, because I personally like the anchovy flavor. Thirdly, I put all the ingredients (minus the egg) in a small food processor to blend before whisking it into the egg. Last, I added 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese to the dressing. I also substituted shredded parmesan for the grated Parmigiano Reggiano. I like the texture of the shredded cheese with the romaine rather than grated. I used dijon mustard and light olive oil, as suggested. I really enjoyed it and will definitely make again. Thanks Jeff!
