Pretty good, though anchovy paste is so much easier. Served with side of broccoli rabe/garlic/hot turkey sausage. And the recommended CL lemon spaghetti, which was really great.

I wanted to try something different from my other Caesar dressing recipes. This one was unique. Very creamy in texture. Strong flavor with simple ingredients. It has a strong fish taste, which we liked, but you must like the anchovy taste to like this recipe. Will make again, but it won't be my everyday Ceasar dressing recipe. Also, I added some garlic powder to the croutons when mixing with oil. Much better flavor!

I always was scared of Caesar salad because I thought it was a fat-laden meal that just doesn't fit into my diet. However, this dressing is amazing, lower fat, and doesn't miss a beat on the taste. I used fish sauce in place of the anchovy fillets, and egg beaters instead of the egg yolks. The homemade croÃ»tons break up the romaine and add texture. I served it with lemon spaghetti (lemon rind & juice, s & p, red pepper, and Parmesan cheese), as recommended in the magazine. I think this salad would fool people into thinking you got it from a restaurant. With chicken or shrimp...mmmm...I'm getting hungry just thinking about it... :o)

This was my first time making homemade Caesar dressing; I will do it all the time now that I know how easy and better-tasting it is! We really liked this one; definitely a strong anchovy taste but we enjoyed it. I would maybe add a bit of lemon juice next time, just for some depth of flavour. It was very easy to mix together in my mini food processor. I didn't make the croutons as I make my own homemade ones out of whole wheat bread ends.
