Traditional Caesar Salad

Traditional Caesar Salad created by Probably This

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!

    If making for one person, how long can the unused portion be refrigerated
  2. Lorraine K.
    Can I make the dressing a few hours before making and serving the salad?

    Don't be put off by the anchovies or egg. This dressing is amazing and you'll never buy jar dressing again. I use raw eggs which I'm sure there's some concerns about but that's the way my mother always made it. I also like to put it all in my Nutribullet which is fast, easy and makes for a creamier dressing. Add fresh ground pepper on the salad to taste.
