    Chef Surf'n Safari's Note:

    This recipe is the classic original Caesar Salad with the dressing made from scratch. It has that bite that the best Caesar Salad dressings are supposed to have. This dressing will wow your guests and have them asking you where you bought it. I learned and refined this recipe while in culinary school. It is very important that you use fresh ingredients that have not been pre-processed (ie. lemon not bottle of lemon juice, block of parmesan cheese not parmesan cheese already grated in a container, etc.).

      OMG!! This is the best caesar salad dressing I have ever made. It is just like the caesar salad that I've had at the 5-star restaurants in Newport Beach & Laguna Beach. And now I can make it myself. Everyone was so impressed, they thought that I had bought it from a restaurant. Thank you soooooo much for sharing this recipe. I hope that you don't get into any trouble revealing your restaurant's secret recipes, I guess since you're the head chef, you can do what you want. I would give this 6-Stars if I could.

      This Caesar Salad turned out delicious! I completely followed the recipe, the dressing got a little too thick but I thinned it with sour cream and it was divine! This is going the only caesar dressing used in my house. Thank you for posting!
