Anne's Anchovy-less Caesar Salad Dressing, Ingredients Assembled

Anne’s Anchovy-less Caesar Salad Dressing

There are no anchovies in this dressing.  It’s delicious.  If you want to add them feel free.  I don’t care for them so it’s perfect just the way it is!  I’ve tried, I really have, even trying really fresh ones in Italy.  The garlic gives it a really good punch. Anne gave me her recipe long time ago.  We make the dressing often as you can tell from the stained, well-used recipe in the photo. Get out the romaine, parmesan and homemade croutons.

Makes approximately 1 cup

1 egg
2 garlic, coarsely crushed
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
9 Tbsp. EVOO
Dash of salt to taste
½ tsp. sugar
¼ tsp. pepper
½ tsp. Dijon mustard
1 ½ tsp. lemon juice
2-4 drops of Tabasco
2-4 drops of Worcestershire sauce

Combine everything but the oil in a blender. Blend well. Slowly drizzle in the oil until well emulsified. Pour into a jar and keep chilled for up to 3 or 4 days.

Toss with romaine lettuce leaves, a generous sprinkling of Parmesan cheese and croutons, toss again.  Enjoy!
