    Hey Jude's Note:

    I wish I had a nickel for every time I was either asked to make this salad for a gathering, or asked for the recipe for it! The dressing is irresistable! A good description for this is a Caesar Salad gone balistic. It travels well too; I prepare all the ingredients, except the avocado, and pack in separate containers and just assemble it when I get to my destination. So much of this can be done ahead of time that it makes this recipe an excellent choice for a dinner party. Plan on having copies of the recipe available because you will be asked for them! I found this recipe in the Sunset CookBook of Favorite Recipes II.

      I really enjoyed this salad and dressing, but I have to admit I left out the egg.(I'm just a chicken I guess!) It is a nice change from the sweet and sour dressing I usually make. Thanks for posting this!
