      I know it’s not the healthiest but I love Caesar salad. I make a good homemade dressing but I also like to order it out to see what others’ make. I like it really garlicky and creamy.

      For every day dressing I use lemon juice, olive oil, seasonings like salt, pepper and herbs and use a spoon of dijon mustard to help the whole thing thicken.

      We don’t buy bottled dressing. Don’t really know why. I like bottled dressing but I don’t buy it. If I did, it would be Bernsteins, Girard’s Champagne, ranch, Bob’s Big Boy blue cheese.

      A friend of ours is one of the original owners of the Chart House restaurants. Their blue cheese dressing was so popular they started printing the recipe on little recipe cards and giving them away. I had one years ago and still make it sometimes but it’s WAY fattening!

      What’s your favorite?

        • Neicy, it’s easy!

          9 ingredients: in order of going into a blender or food processor

          2 cloves of garlic
          6 anchovie filets
          1 tsp dijon mustard
          splash of tobasco
          splash of worcestershire sauce
          juice of 1/2 lemon
          2 Tbsp mayonnaise OR
          1 egg yolk
          process and then while the machine is running:
          drizzle olive oil in slowly until it thickens
          Add 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup grated parmesan

          Thick, creamy and delicious!

          I use egg when it’s just Joe and I. We buy very fresh eggs or I used to get an egg from our chickens when we had them. Mayonnaise eliminates any concern of raw egg issues.
