Here's a smooth and tasty alternative to regular Caesar dressing. This recipe has stood the test of time in my kitchen, and is requested often. It tastes best on Romaine tossed with 'Spring Mix' lettuces. The dressing will keep up to two weeks in the refrigerator in an air-tight container.

Light, refreshing dressing that lets the salad greens shine and be the star. Didn't add the Parmesan to the dressing, preferring to add freshly shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano right before serving. Also elected to omit the sugar, even tho' it was a slight amount. Hubs and I really enjoyed this. I was particularly appreciative of the olive oil to vinegar ratio, which made this much less acrid and tangy than other dressings. Nice.

Excellent salad dressing! It's more of a vinaigrette than a traditional Caesar dressing. It's great with or without the Parmesan cheese. And, it doesn't overpower your mixed greens - this is a definite keeper.

Pretty good tasting, but boy is it ugly looking! Maybe I'll try it with white balsamic to make the colour less brown. If you could make it nicer looking, it would work well as a dip for baby romaine leaves, mushrooms, baby carrots and breadsticks, but it needs a looks makeover before anyone would venture to try it.
