Caesar Salad Recipe

For a delicious Caesar salad recipe, add these homemade croutons adding a lot of crunch and flavor to your salad. A little known fact about Caesar salads is that these salads originated in Mexico, and were served at many fine restaurants throughout the country. The original Mexican recipe is a little different than the American version. My recipe for Caesar salad is made without a raw egg and it still tastes wonderful-- If I must say so myself. I make a batch of this dressing every few weeks and mix it with a bunch of Romaine lettuce. I always add extra fresh Parmesan cheese to top off the salad.

Keep a few small tins of anchovies when you get a yen for Caesar salad.

      Nice addition to the classic - and glad you kept the anchovies! so many 'caesar's' these days leave them out.
