    Dib's's Note:

    Love this stuff. Sometimes we add seasoned cooked chicken breast for a 1 dish meal. Did you know that this salad was "invented" in Tijuana, Mexico?

      fantastic salad. I used real anchovy fillets, because I don't mind the litle "floaty" parts :-)--but really , I have tried several Caesar dressings and this one is really good. You can trust it! Thanks di for the recommendation and the recipe!

      Actually, this is the closest recipe I've seen so far for the orginal Caesar salad...I had the salad at the Caesar Hotel in Tijuana, and the only thing that is different is the fact the the mustard was plain yellow mustard, I don't think they used canola oil, but olive oil instead, and pepper was used. Thank you for posting this!
