    Terri F.'s Note:

    Nothing beats the original, and this is it. It takes a while to prepare, but it's sooooo worth it! Add cooked chicken breast, shrimp, or beef to make a full meal. Don't forget to pass extra anchovies!

      My wife (and I) LOVES this recipe. She tells me this is the BEST ceasar salad she's ever had, and makes sure I make it every few weeks. It is a bit garlicky, however, but it suits us just fine. I added a little more fresh lemon juice. If you're an anchovie lover, make sure you save a few filets to garnish the salad. Much tahnks to Terri F. for posting this one!

      I am now spoiled. Any other caesar salad I ever have will only pale in comparison to this one. Thanks for the recipe.

      This was wonderful. Very garlicy just like I like it. I was a little scared of using the eggs so I only used one egg. I will be brave enough to use two eggs the next time. I used the blender to blend all of the dressing ingredients. I added a little cajun spice to the croutons and I also added blackened chicken strips to the salad. My kids and husband gave this salad a "thumbs up". It's very rare that I make something that pleases the entire family. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
