My husband LOVES Caesar salad, so I thought this would be a fun recipe to try. Not sure what I did wrong, but this did NOT taste like Caesar salad. The dressing had an aftertaste that was just .. off. I used fat-free mayo. Also, the anchovy filets I got were soaked in olive oil and salad, so that might have added additional flavoring (not sure if they sell anchovy filets just by themselves?). I'm thinking the biggest culprit was the mayo, though. Next time, I'd use either light or full-fat mayo. Also, I'd recommend putting in the dressing slowly and adding more as needed - I only used about half.
Also, note to self - either buy Croutons next time, or let them toast until they're HARD. Because some of the bread pieces were still soft, and of course when they went into the salad, they just got even soggier. Soggy croutons = no bueno.
I'm going to give this recipe the benefit of the doubt, considering all the rave reviews, but I think it'll be awhile until I brave making my own Caesar salad again.
