How to Make the Original Caesar Salad Dressing
The original Caesar salad dressing recipe was based on oil, garlic, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce, although many modern Caesar salad dressing recipes use mayonnaise and other ingredients. To be honest there are plenty of different recipes for Caesar salad dressing but the following bears the most resemblance to the original Caesar salad dressing recipe.
It is important to add the oil steadily and constantly whisk the dressing while you do so. Get somebody to help with this if necessary. If you add the oil too fast, the dressing will separate instead of emulsifying.
Caesar salad dressing is typically served over torn romaine, with ciabatta croutons. Toss the romaine with the croutons and homemade Caesar dressing and serve immediately. Some people like to add a few whole canned anchovies on top, or else serve the salad with salmon, chicken or shrimp, to make it more hearty. Serving a homemade Caesar salad dressing instead of the inferior bottled kind means your salad will be fresh-tasting and flavorful, boasting all the authentic ingredients in traditional Caesar salad recipes. Have this as an appetizer or, in a larger portion, as your entrée. Caesar salad is a timeless dish which is found on menus all over the world.
