My entire family said this was the best caesar salad they have ever eaten!
By the way, we are Italian, live in NY and have had lots of caesar salads.
It was easy and very delicious and true caesar.
I also stir fired chicken pieces with some of the dressing and added it to the salad with fresh toasted garlic-butter croutons . It was really good.
Thank you. I have been lookling for years for a good caeser salad recipe.
We found the flavor of the extra virgin olive oil way too strong for this salad; perhaps using extra light would work better and not be so overwhelming. Also, I question the accuracy of the mustard powder measurement -- should it have perhaps been 1/4 teaspoon vs. 1/4 tablespoon? I don't think this is one that I'll make again. I also tried the recipe for Caesar Salad Supreme; it was a creamy vs. oil dressing, and it was much more flavorful.
The only person in my family who LOVES anchovies is my husband. Well, guess what? He was outvoted because my girls and I don't like them so I left them out. I was, however, a nice wife and threw some on top of his salad plate. To me, this is the perfect caesar salad and I thank you Cathy for submitting it!
This was better than any salad I could get at a nice restaurant. A true Caesar. We loved it.
This was an great recipe. I got a lot of compliments from this recipe. It was my first time making it and I didn't screw it up, it's practically fail proof. I will definitely use this recipe again.
This recipe tasted very good. I did NOT add the anchovies, and it was still good. My 6 and 3 year olds ate tons.
I really like this Caesar - I've tried quite a few and they come out too runny, too bland or too something else. If I don't pay *close* attention to the ingredient amount, I get a funky consistency, so it pays to be careful!
Dressing had too much "tang". If I made it again, I'd probably use less lemon juice.
