Where I live there is a restaurant chain called the Italian Bistro and I think they have the BEST Caesar salad dressing. I've been trying to duplicate it for quite a while. It is loaded with garlic and Parmesan cheese. It's very thick which is why it appeals to me. This recipe is very similar to the one I enjoy at the Bistro. In fact.. by George... I THINK I'VE GOT IT!! I hope you
A recipe from The Best 30-minute Recipe of Cook's Illustrated. The flavor in this dressing work especially well with a leafy green salad with sliced cucumber and tomato. ETA : the taste is amazing. It's a bit hard to combine everything in the blender. Next time I'll use the food processor.
No one who has red wine + white vinegar always on-hand should ever be buying commercially-prepared red wine vinegar. Using this 2-ingredient 1:3 ratio mixture w/a 1 min prep is ideal for recipes requiring red wine vinegar & can easily be doubled or tripled to get a larger volume than 1/4 cup as desired. It can also be infused w/garlic or other herbs as desired. I use this a lot & just today discovered to my surprise that this easy-fix copycat was not in the Zaar data base. *Enjoy* !
I collect many of my recipes by asking chefs at restaurants for their recipe for something that I particulary enjoyed. This vinaigrette recipe came from Morton's in Denver. I use it for salads, pasta and vegies.
