Recipe by Diana Adcock

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!
