Caesar Salad

If you've only had Caesar salad with dressing from a bottle, try this one and you'll be amazed at the difference in quality. The original Caesar Salad was made in Tijuana for Hollywood visitors (named after the proprietor).

It is absolutely essential to get the romaine bone-dry for the best salad. Prepare and refrigerate the lettuce at least 2 hours before serving, preferably more.

Hey Steve, can't wait to try this salad. I adore anchovies & as an L. A. resident I know, or have heard & read about that T. J. Rest. This will be perfect for my Fri. " my non meat" day, tomorrow. Will leave review later. Thanks!

Wow, Cupcake2077, sorry you hated my Caesar Salad! But, I've got to say -- without anchovies, it is not a true Caesar Salad.

This was great. I had to use anchovy paste, but it worked well. I also added the zest from the lemon and a little black pepper. This is a new favourite.

I have been making this salad dressing exactly like this for over 20 years, I do not measure anything anymore. It's such a great dressing.

We've made this twice and love it. We only add half the anchovies, the dressing is nice and light, not heavy and creamy, very flavorful. This is the one we'll use from now on. Thank you!

I thought it tasted very fishy. But maybe I bought the wrong anchovies. Mine were packed in oil. Maybe I should have rinsed them?? Not used as many??
