  1. Clean lettuce thoroughly and wrap in paper towels to absorb moisture. Refrigerate until crisp, at least 1 hour or more.
  2. In a bowl or jar combine oil, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, salt, mustard, garlic and lemon juice. Whisk until well blended.
  3. Coddle egg by heating 3 cups of water to boiling. Drop in egg (still in shell) and let stand for 1 minute. Remove egg from water and let cool. Once cooled crack open and whisk egg into dressing. Whisk until thoroughly blended.
  4. Mash desired amount of anchovies and whisk them into the dressing. If desired set aside a few for garnish.
  5. To assemble, place torn lettuce leaves in a large bowl. Pour dressing over the top and toss lightly. Add the grated cheese, garlic croutons and freshly ground pepper, toss. Serve immediately!

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...

This was better than any salad I could get at a nice restaurant. A true Caesar. We loved it.

This recipe tasted very good. I did NOT add the anchovies, and it was still good. My 6 and 3 year olds ate tons.

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 aga...

Dressing had too much "tang". If I made it again, I'd probably use less lemon juice.

This was great... I made it without the anchovies though!! :)
