The perfect Caesar dressing.

Top Review by pilotwife

Good proportions except for mustard. 1 tsp is excellent (prior reviews warned me--TY!) I would never use romano in caesar--too assertive. I split the parm--used much less--put some in dressing and some on top. Far too many croutons, tho--I'm not serving a panzanella--I add them to dressed salad (that picture looks way too soggy BTW). I prefer to share acids, too--half lemon, half red wine vinegar. Great base w/some tweaks.
