Caesar Salad Dressing

I have a very old recipe for Caesar salad dressing,  it is hand written. It’s a very Chefy recipe, you use a coddled egg and whisk in the oil very slowly.  Made it following the recipe exactly for years. Actually a great recipe with super flavours. Problem is, it’s hard to make. Liked making it I guess because it made me look like I knew how to cook. Funny thing as I look back at it all I was doing is making something simple, hard. So call this recipe either me being lazy or maybe a little smarter.

Thought about the recipe, egg with oil whisk in slowly. That is exactly how you make mayonnaise. So Caesar salad dressing is what? It’s mayonnaise with the other ingredients added in. Find a really good mayonnaise and 90 percent of the work making Caesar salad dressing is done for you.

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 and 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon anchovy paste

1 teaspoon mustard powder

1 large clove garlic (grated with a micro grater or use a garlic press)

1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper

2 tablespoons grated Asiago cheese or parmigiana cheese

Add lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, anchovy paste, mustard powder, garlic, salt and pepper to a small bowl. Mix very well with a fork, add mayonnaise, mix until smooth. Fold in cheese just before serving. Thickness of mayonnaise can vary, if you need to thin it out use a little cold water.
