This os the first Caesar salad I made at the age of eight. It is an excellent recipe and the cheater, fridge-stored one I use today is based on this...and it is good!
I've made this recipe from an old Betty Crocker cookbook for years. It is the absolute best recipe for Caesar salad there is. Coddled egg is somewhat out of fashion but the fact is, no other dressing tastes quite the same.
