Caesar Salad

I love a Caesar Salad, and this homemade dressing is what makes this salad EXCELLENT.  It is worth the effort.  It's from Kittencal's Kitchen (online).
  • 1 large head of romaine lettuce or a 1 lb. bag
  • 1/3 C. parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 ½ C. garlic croutons
  • ½ T. anchovy paste
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 C. mayonnaise
  • ½ C. sour cream
  • ¼ C. half and half or milk
  • 1/3 C. parmesan cheese, grated
  • 3 T. fresh lemon juice, or juice of one lemon
  • 1 T. Dijon mustard
  • 1 T. Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ t. black pepper
  1. In a food processor, add all of the ingredients for the dressing and process until all ingredients are incorporated (about 30 seconds).
  2. Refrigerate the dressing.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, cheese, and dressing.
  4. Top with the croutons.
Tips and Tricks:
  • Make the dressing the day before you want to serve the salad.  The dressing will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
  • You can add the meat of your choice to this salad.  Rotisserie chicken, grilled chicken, or grilled or fried shrimp are GREAT.
