      YUMMY! Used my processor as LP did but added a couple of extra TBSPs of buttermilk to make it smoother. We used it to dip the ribs, spinach quiche, poppers, & cheesy buttermilk drop biscuits (#106305) in at dinner tonight. Wonderful taste. Even our 4 y/o grandson liked it! Wonder about using smoke roasted garlic... Hmmm!

      This is one of those recipes were there's not enough stars. *swoons* I halved the recipe and did pretty much what Leggy Peggy did - roasted my garlic with last night's dinner and whirled everything together in the food processor today. Definitely use good fresh Parmesan - it's a major taste component in the dressing. I took one taste and agreed with LP; buttermilk caesar!

      Absolutely divine. I baked the garlic yesterday (when something else was in the oven) and made the dressing today. Rather than mash and whisk, I buzzed everything up in the food processor. I bet you could throw in one or two anchovies, to make it a perfect dressing for a caesar salad. Yummo!
