Classic Restaurant Caesar Salad

"I used to work at a very fancy restaurant while I was in college. The best part of the job was making table side salads, entrees, and dessert. This was the best Caesar salad I have ever had! If having trouble getting the anchovy to mash, add a couple of croutons. They provide sort of an anti-skid surface, and the hard edges of the croutons cut into the anchovy."

Ok, and for the tweeks.... Instead of the raw egg I use about 1/2 cup mayonnaise, eliminate the vinegar, reduce the olive oil by half, add 1/2 cup grated fresh parmesan and whip together with th...

Great recipe. Easy to follow and liked by everyone even my non-salad eating husband!

When I saw this called for an egg yolk I knew it was a traditional recipe. I use a tablespoon Anchovy Paste in place of the whole anchovies when making a salad for four, it mixes well and taste ...

I can't imagine a ceasar salad without fresh, course ground black pepper! I also worked at a fancy restaurant and we back waiters always assembled the salad at the table-and theatrics COUNTED! ...

I used to do the same service in a fine restaurant and we always used a coddled egg, I would not make this salad with a raw egg. We also tossed the romaine with fresh squeezed lemon juice before...

I liked this a lot. I think next time I will use a little less lemon juice, it was a bit tart. Also, maybe another anchovy filet or two. I also will try using balsalmic vinegar for 1/2 the re...

The dressing is best when using a coddled egg instead of a raw egg yolk: Bring a pot of water to a full boil, place an egg in the water for exactly 60 seconds (no more!), then remove and put und...
