I don’t remember where I got this recipe (maybe Betty Crocker) but it’s great for Caesar salad or any salad. If you hate the taste of anchovies, leave out the paste. I don’t actually like anchovies but I don’t mind the little bit of paste in this dressing. It adds a nice salty taste. I tend to go crazy with my salads and add a lot of stuff on top: fruit, nuts, and all kinds of veggies. My sister just recommended raw, shaved butternut but I haven’t had a chance to try it yet. The funny thing is, when I was a kid I never liked a lot of “accessories”, as I called them, on my salad. Now, just about anything goes. I never buy dressing in the store anymore. It’s so easy to make your own and it’s so much better for you.
Easy Caesar Dressing
1/3 c. olive oil
1/4 tsp. salt
dash of black pepper
3 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. Worchestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. dijon mustard
1 tsp. anchovy paste (optional)
1 egg yolk (free range egg only)
Mix all ingredients in small bowl and whisk. Makes enough for two big salads or four normal size salads. This will keep in the fridge for a few days, too.
