So this is the best caesar salad dressing ever…and i mean ever!!! You will not taste a better one. This recipe is from my dad who I refer to as “Big G”. He got the recipe on a business trip in France in the early 1950’s from an old french naval seacaptain.
Honestly the taste is SO good, you can put it on anything…I use it on sliced tomatoes, halved avocadoes, sliced beets, and or any salad or vegetable you can think of. The key is to use ALL the ingredients below and to not double the proportions. If you have more than 4 or 5 people, just make 2 portions of the recipe below. Also, don’t add cheese to the salad…This isn’t a creamy caesar salad dressing like typical italian restaurants…This is pure Old School french style and the flavor doesnt need to be tainted with cheese. The other key is to make sure the lettuce is dry…otherwise the dressing doesnt stick to the leaves…so here it is!!!
6 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons lemon
1 egg yolk
3 or 4 garlic cloves minced in a garlic crusher
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped capers
5 or 6 flat anchovies finely chopped(or more if you want)
pepper to taste
