this is delicious. It has the most satisfying crunch and sparkle. I have made it a few times during this (very long) winter, and it never gets tiresome. If made without anchovies, it is also very good the next day. I have found many different kinds of mustard work, as well as a whole range of greens as long as they are fresh and crisp. Thanks!
Fantastic!! I'm crazy about this salad this winter and am serving it every time I have guests over. It's a hit! Have not had arugula in it yet (although my store is promising to bring some in for me soon!) but the flavours of fennel, radicchio and romaine melded with this dressing is sublime. Have cut up an endive into it too and that's great. I opt on the anchovies. I've also used asiago shaved, exceptionally good, and let my guests shave their own over their servings. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
If you enjoy a Caesar salad you will love this particular salad and dressing. Since my grocer didn't have any radiccio or arugula, I bought a bag of organic baby greens with herbs that included those specified in this recipe. Perhaps it was the bit of sugar added to the dressing, or the salty anchovies or the healthy dose of Dijon that made this dressing a standout...or perhaps it was simply the wonderful, balanced combination of each ingredient that made this dressing a classic. I will be making it again and again. Evelyn, you are amazing!
