This salad dressing has survived the times and has been passed around to many people. It was a Bon Appetit original, but I have changed it so drastically that I can now claim it my own creation!! I am very particular about my Caesar salads...the lettuce can't sit in the dressing too long and get soggy.....the lettuce has to be well washed and dried...it has to have enough dressing to coat the lettuce, but not simming in sauce...lettuce torn in "bite size pieces", not so big that you have to use a knife and fork to get it into your mouth!!! These crutons are devine! Make enough so that you have enough for sticky fingers who keep finching the finished product.
