I love a good cesear salald. Especially if its got another of my favorite ingredients in it, shrimp! I stumbled across this recipe and tweaked it to my own likings. If you don't want to use shrimp, you can use cubed chicken breast or sliced roast beef instead.

- 3⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 4 tablespoons lemon juice

- 1 teaspoon anchovy paste
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon salt
