Deliciously Light Caesar Dressing

One of the things I like about this dressing is that it is not overly creamy and seems more along the lines of a vinaigrette .  We use romaine which is typical of a Caesar salad but I like to add some VERY thin sliced yellow onion and some green onions and tomatoes. 

Ingredients List:

2 heads romaine lettuce, rough chopped,  and what ever extra salad ingredients (if any) you would like to use.

1 cup fresh finely shaved parmesan cheese

2 large fresh egg yolks

1 Tbs anchovy paste (you can use 4 or 5 anchovies, fine chopped.  I just like the way the paste blends.)

1 Tbs. minced garlic

1 /2 Tbs. dijon mustard

zest and juice of a lemon

Kosher salt to taste…  the anchovy is very salty so start with a good pinch and go from there

coarse ground black pepper

1/2 cup Extra virgin olive oil

2 heads romaine lettuce, rough chopped,  and what ever extra salad ingredients (if any) you would like to use.

Mix all of your lettuce and salad ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Top with the parmesan cheese.  In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks until frothy… about 2 -3 minutes.  Add the anchovy paste (or anchovies), garlic, mustard, lemon, salt and pepper and heavily whisk for about 1 minute.  Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while gently whisking.  Pour over the salad greens and toss until well coated.

Serve and Enjoy!!!
