This is a dressing for garlic lovers, and definitely better than most store-bought brands. I used dairy and egg-free mayonnaise and cut the oil to 1/4 cup. It was so creamy and runny by that point, I didn't see the need to add another 1/4 cup. By the way, this made way more than I needed to cover one head of romaine lettuce. Next time, I think I'll halve it.

This is a great dressing. We had it on a salad tonight that we ate with Yooper's Greek beef and pasta. I know it was meant to have 8 cloves of garlic in it, but I honestly didn't feel like that much raw garlic tonight, so only put 4 large ones in. It was still garlickly and creamy and delicious.

Really enjoyed this salad dressing, made as written. We garlic lovers thought the garlic was just right, but couldn't taste the anchovies per se. I made with mayonnaise this time for Summer Tuna & Pasta Salad, but will try without mayo next time.

Finally a Caesar dressing that I love. I used 4 teaspoons minced garlic (in a jar) and left out the mayo. I needed to process it in the food processor for quite a long time before it was completely emulsified, but it was completely creamy and just the right consistency at that point. I use relatively small amounts of dressing on salads and I thought that adding the mayo would tone down the flavor too much. Thanks for such a great recipe.

AWESOME recipe! LOVED it. Very garlicky with only 4 garlic cloves. Added a pinch more parmesan for extra creamy texture. So awesome. Thanks!

I was trying to cook in an ingredient challenged kitchen and so left out the anchovies and red wine vinegar but it still came out marvellous. I also cut back on the garlic to 4 cloves. I would use more but only if really fresh! (did I mention ingredient challenged? the garlic was collecting the old age pension) Kids loved it too!

Great recipe, although I made a couple of changes. I halved the recipe, then use only 3 cloves of garlic. Although I am a garlic lover, I still found it to be a bit pungent, so next time I will use 2. I also found the pepper taste to be a bit much, but that can easily be fixed. Overall, definitely the best homemade Caesar dressing I've ever had!

This is a great recipe, albeit rather potent with the garlic. A little goes a long way. I added some extra vinegar and oil to cut the strength of the garlic a bit. Thanks for a great recipe!
