This recipe contains a raw egg yolk; if this is a concern, substitue a pasteurized yolk.

Put all the dressing ingredients except the oil in a blender. Blend until thoroughly combined. With the motor running, carefully pour in the oil in a slow, steady stream. You can store the dressing, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

easy and delicious

Simple, delicious. What else is there to say. Made without anchovies and it was still great.

Delicious! Next time I think I might add 1 clove of garlic.
