“I used to work at a very fancy restaurant while I was in college. The best part of the job was making table side salads, entrees, and dessert. This was the best Caesar salad I have ever had! If having trouble getting the anchovy to mash, add a couple of croutons. They provide sort of an anti-skid surface, and the hard edges of the croutons cut into the anchovy.”

Directions

  1. Mash garlic with anchovies in a large salad bowl. Whisk lemon juice, red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, egg yolk, and Worcestershire sauce into the anchovy mixture until mixture is smooth and creamy. Gradually whisk olive oil into the dressing, pouring the oil into the dressing in a thin stream while stirring constantly. Season with salt and black pepper.
  2. Gently mix romaine lettuce and Parmesan cheese into the dressing until thoroughly coated; serve salad topped with croutons.

This is close to the 'original' Caesar Salad recipe that I have been making for almost forty years. The only difference being that my recipe does NOT include any red wine vinegar but another third of a lemon's juice, six to eight dashes of Worcestershire, a few more anchovy filets and 'KEEN's Hot English Mustard' instead of Dijon but Dijon is fine (The 'KEEN'S' gives it a bit more zip!). The preparation is very easy to mess this up if not done delicately, thoroughly and carefully and I think from the comments of the worst reviews that the 'chefs' were not prudent and messed up....from my own past mistakes. ALSO, folks who claim to not like or want anchovies in their Caesar Salad are then NOT eating a Caesar Salad and any chef who claims to make a Caesar Salad without anchovies is not making a Caesar Salad...it MAY be a good salad but it is 'something else', just NOT a Caesar. NB...the 'original' Caesar Salad was created in Northern Mexico at the Caesar Brothers restaurant circa 1938 to feed the cast and crew when shooting ran late during the filming of the movie 'STAGECOACH'. There is nothing Italian or anything to do with Rome or Julius Caesar about it.

Excellent as-is, my sweety was very happy with it and I'll use the same recipe again. I only had anchovy paste in a tube...but a teaspoon of that worked fine. Forgot to buy fresh garlic so had to use powdered which was the only mis-step in terms of taste -- not the recipe's fault.
