How to Make a Great Ceasar Salad Dressing - A Garlic Lovers Recipe
A Delicious Ceasar Salad Dressing recipe is worth its weight in gold! It's amazing how few restaurants know how to make a great ceasar salad dressing. Ceasar salad dressing is easily the one thing I have been most disappointed in, when dining out. Especially when you consider this is usually eaten as an appetizer to the main meal, there is nothing worse than having an unappetizing ceasar salad.
The downfalls are many, and include the use of bottled dressing, not enough garlic, too much garlic (yes, its hard to believe but too much garlic can happen), or simply missing other necessary ingredients or combination thereof. The best Ceasar Salad Dressing is a good example of where the greater whole is a sum of its parts. In other words, you can't omit any part (because you don't like the taste - blue cheese, anchoves) or the final product will not be great as it was meant to be.
Believe me, I am not a fan of blue cheese or anchoves by themselves, but to make a delicious ceasar salad dressing, they play a huge part in the final product. So here I give you a garlic lovers ceasar salad. Give it a try, you will absolutely love it! Remember, do not miss a single ingredient, you won't be disappointed! This is how all restaurants should make Ceasar Salad.
For me this is the greatest Ceasar Salad dressing recipe to be found anywhere. Whenever we make this Ceasar Salad dressing, we make enough salad for at least ten people as that's just enough for the four of us. Sometimes this is all we need, who needs supper when the Ceasar Salad is this good!

Delicious Ceasar Salad Dressing Recipe - For Garlic Lovers
This recipe will be sure to have you craving it time after time and is for people who love garlic! It is important to use the ingredients listed to capture the flavours intended.
Start with soaking your romaine lettuce in cold water.
In a blender:
Pour in one cup of olive oil(extra virgin or regular is fine)
6-7 gloves of garlic (peeled)
Coddled egg is optional
1 ½ TBSP of anchovy paste or half can of anchovies
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp. of dry mustard
5 ounces of blue cheese
1 cup parmesan cheese
1 TBSP worcheschire sauce
*Salt and pepper optional(there is a fair bit of salt from the anchovy paste; would recommend waiting until after to taste)
Blend these ingredients together until thick and smooth consistency. Chill for one hour before you use to allow the ingredients to meld together for optimal flavour. (If not using the egg, this can be kept in the fridge for one week)
When you are ready to use, spoon mixture over your chilled romaine lettuce and croutons; add a little at a time and toss thoroughly; add additional dressing until all the lettuce has a light coating. Sprinkle with extra parmesan cheese just before you serve and enjoy!
Serves 12-16 people.
This salad is great to serve with a baguette or cheese garlic toast (see below)
Cheesee Garlic Toast
Garlic Spread Mixture
¼ cup olive oil
1/2 cup butter
2 cloves crushed garlic
1/8 Tsp. garlic salt
½ Tsp. parsley flakes
Cream these ingredients together and spread over French bread (or your choice), BOTH SIDES; Set under broiler and lightly brown one side, remove from oven and cover other side with shredded cheddar cheese; set under broiler until cheese bubbles, remove and serve.
If you do not like cheddar cheese, you can add ½ cup of parmesan cheese to the garlic spread mixture cover both sides of the bread and broil both sides - also very good
