Servings: four to six.
If you don’t have a large mortar and pestle, you can easily make the garlic paste with a chef’s knife. Keep in mind that this is a zesty, assertive dressing that comes into balance nicely when combined with the cool, crisp romaine and salty Parmesan.
If you’re serving this salad to anyone with a compromised immune system, replace the raw egg yolk in the dressing with the yolk from a soft-boiled egg, or omit the egg yolk altogether.

Great dressing and so easy to make if you use the mortar and pestle method described. My m&p is small so I got this up to the last stage and then transferred to a measuring cup for the whisking. I used half the garlic and may next time use a little more, but it's plenty strong at half. It's got plenty of flavor and I love how much easier the dressing is with the mortar and pestle. I'll be making this many more times in the future!
This is an excellent version of Caesar Salad. I have been making this for many years to great acclaim.
Wonderful salad dressing recipe. Very strong garlic flavour, so if your not big on garlic, you might not enjoy it. The croutons are a must!
