The classic Caesar salad which contains croutons, anchovies and an eggy dressing. The amount of anchovies you add is up to your personal taste.
We found the flavor of the extra virgin olive oil way too strong for this salad; perhaps using extra light would work better and not be so overwhelming. Also, I question the accuracy of the mustard powder measurement -- should it have perhaps been 1/4 teaspoon vs. 1/4 tablespoon? I don't think this is one that I'll make again. I also tried the recipe for Caesar Salad Supreme; it was a creamy vs. oil dressing, and it was much more flavorful. - 19 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
My entire family said this was the best caesar salad they have ever eaten! By the way, we are Italian, live in NY and have had lots of caesar salads. It was easy and very delicious and true caesar. I also stir fired chicken pieces with some of the dressing and added it to the salad with fresh toasted garlic-butter croutons . It was really good. Thank you. I have been lookling for years for a good caeser salad recipe. - 09 Mar 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
The only person in my family who LOVES anchovies is my husband. Well, guess what? He was outvoted because my girls and I don't like them so I left them out. I was, however, a nice wife and threw some on top of his salad plate. To me, this is the perfect caesar salad and I thank you Cathy for submitting it! - 01 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
