This Caesar salad does not mess around. It has everything in great amounts to make it an extremely flavorful and sustaining side dish (or meal in itself). Can add cooked chicken breast if desired to make it more of a meal-in-one.

I've never put mayo in my caesar dressing nor a POUND of bacon and no onions but I DO use capers and anchovies sparingly. By the way I think you HAVE to have dijon mustard in there or is that just my secret ingredient...A teaspoon of salt is a LOT and you forgot the pepper. Where on earth do you get a "pasteurized" egg? It's supposed to be raw. And you forgot the parmesan which all Caesar salads have. Actually I wouldn't try this as it is described here. Read More

DELICIOUS! I made the dressing earlier in the day omitting the egg (I just couldn't lol) but adding in a little extra olive oil...the flavors fo the dressing are fantastic. Also I forgot to buy croutons at the store so I made my own which made this that much better. Loved the mushrooms and bacon in this as well. I think maybe next time I would add some fresh grated parm. cheese but other than that this was wonderful YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Omitted the egg skipped the bacon (a few vegans at the table) and it was still fabulous. The dressing is excellent! Made croutons with the Garlic Crouton recipe on this site which I highly recommend. Only change I'd make next time is maybe go with a half teaspoon of pepper rather than the full teaspoon. Thank you for a great salad! Read More

This is a very good salad but it is NOT a Caesar salad - not with all the other ingredients a true Caesar salad doesn't have - bacon mushrooms etc. Read More
