I found this on the net, and it is so very delicious! The romaine is very crisp and cold; The dressing is out of this world. One thing about Ceasar dressing, if you make more than you will need for a single setting, take it out of the fridge for a few minutes, as olive oil solidifies in the cold. Another thing, please don't use the parmesan in the green can, buy a piece at your local market for this, and grate it yourself. It will be so worth it. About the croutons, it may sound funny, but it does make a big difference.

Well Sam knows their Caesar salad. And I am glad you found Sam's salad. This is wonderful, and absolutely delicious, and don't know why this hasn't been reviewed like 100 times! So easy, and the anchovies are a must. I followed this exactly and crushed the garlic clove in my old wooden salad bowl. There is enough dressing for this week, and I am excited to have some for the next couple of days. For the photo I added some red/onion which brought out the colors on the plate.
