    Chef #1408361's Note:

    The recipe I found for this dressing which is all over the web isn't even close, so I went to the kitchen and started tinkering while the memory of the delicious chef salad I had at Mellow Mushroom last night is fresh in my mind. Here's my best effort.

      This is really close- I think you will find that anchovy is one of the flavors that is missing- it is essential to the distinctive flavor. Try replacing the worchester sauce with an equal amount of quality anchovy paste & store the rest of the tube in the fridge for later.

      I also used crushed raw garlic instead of granulated (I put several cloves through a garlic press) and a bit more fresh crushed pepper to give it some kick. I crave the Mellow Mushroom Greek salad all the time and this is the missing link I needed to make it at home! Thanks!

      This recipe was a great starting point. I brought home an extra cup of the real thing from Mellow Mushroom and was able to compare them side by side as I made some adjustments. First, as another reviewer suggested, it needs anchovy paste. I added 1 to 2 tsp. Second, the original has a pretty strong dill flavor, so I added 1 to 2 tsp of dill. Third, the original is pretty thick so I added mayo. I added more of all of the herbs and spices (and anchovy paste) as if I were doubling the recipe to maintain all the flavor (no additional vinegar, water or oil) and a cup of mayonnaise. Thanks for getting me started-without this original post I wouldn't have had a clue, but now I have a fabulous dressing!

      After deciding that I needed this dressing in my home, I went looking for a recipe and found this one. I'm one to look for shortcuts, and after reading about the importance of adding anchovies, it made me instantly think of caesar dressing. So, I bought some Newman's creamy caesar dressing, added about 1 tbsp of dijon mustard to 2 tbsp of the caesar dressing, and then about 1 tbsp of white vinegar, and I'd be fooled if someone told me that was the real thing!
