    Assembled to recipe with a bit more Tabasco due to sloppiness on my part. Assertive flavors, creamy dressing, definitely would make for guests or potlucks. Served as first course to CL's steak tips with peppered mushroom gravy.

    This was terrific, easy to make. I forgot to add the extra clove of garlic, but didn't miss it at all. A nice change of pace from regular ceasar dressing!

    This was an awesome Caesar salad! I used the last of my homemade pesto and left out the anchovy paste (personal preferences). Caesar salad will be on our regular rotation - finally! Way better than any bottled dressing I've tried!

    I usually avoid caesar salad because it is so high in calories and fat, but not since I've tried this recipe. I used homemade pesto (classic basil pesto recipe from CL Aug 2005) and low fat mayo. I didn't use anchovies only because I had none in the house...I served it to guests who raved about it. Definitely a new favorite at our house.

    My husband and I LOVE this recipe. Throw some seasoned grilled chicken on top and it makes a great main course! I added a little EVOO to my dressing.

    I have always considered my homemade caesar salad worth the trouble. After making this easy recipe I am reconsidering. Why take an hour to make homemade croutons and dressing when you can make this recipe in less than ten minutes. This is a great recipe.

    Delicious and easy. My kids loved it too(I omitted the anchovy paste). I served it with a meatless noodle main dish, but it can be served with any meal or is a meal in itself.

    I made this for dinner last night - this salad is restaurant quality! I couldn't believe it! Very easy to make! The only thing I did different is I omitted the anchovy paste (I don't like anchovies). I'll definately make this again!

    Hands down the best Caesar dressing I've ever had. I recommend including the anchovy, even though I actually don't like anchovies personally. It adds depth to the flavor, but there is no distinct fishy taste -- there are so many other flavors that stand out (hot sauce, pesto, etc).
