For the person who didn't quite care for the dressing and was preferring something creamier-- Stir a small spoonful of mayo or cream into the dressing. That will give it a creamier consistency. A pinch of dijon mustard would help too. (It was the missing flavor component in my taste.) You can also wisk the dressing to emulsify it. Read More

Okay. It's missing something but I can't put my finger on it. Maybe I just prefer creamier caesar dressings. Read More

This recipe was excellent! I doubled the dressing so that I would have some left for tomorrow night's salad. I always include a salad with our dinner and this was a great change from the same old same old. Read More

The dressing really is as good as the reviews say--and it's so simple! I added black and kalamata olives and pine nuts and that put this salad over the edge. This is a new favorite! Read More

This recipe was delicious! I followed it exactly being the first time i have ever tried to make dressing myself. It was great i used it as a side salad. But next time i think i'll make extra and marinade some chicken in it and make a salad as the main dish! Great recipe! Read More

This dressing reminds me of the days when they used to make Caesar salad dressing in a wooden bowl and mashed the garlic to coat the bowl etc. The taste is so similar without the eggs and hard work to boot. Thanks for such a great recipe. Read More

So good and healthy and salty goodness...Although the anchovies in a blender or food processor don't really work (maybe I just don't have hi-tech kitchen gadgets). I recommend just chopping them up very finely and whisking all the ingredients together in a bowl works better. Read More
