    Default Hips Caesar Salad Dressing

    Been making this fresh the last couple of months and thought Id share the recipe.

    Take 1 2oz can of anchovies-drain the oil into a small/med mixing bowl. Chop up the anchovies to desired consistency along with 1 or 2 garlic cloves. Mix with a squirt or two of mustard, a couple of shakes of Worcestershire, some red wine vinegar, and black pepper and mix with a wire whip for a couple of minutes. Add an egg yolk and mix again...you can even use 2 if you prefer a creamier dressing. Dressing should have a shiny hue to it. Slowly drizzle Olive Oil while whipping the mixture....keep drizzling until you get your desired consistency. Add a bit more salt to flavor if desired.

    Sound good. I've seen it made tableside by muddling the anchovies and garlic with a bit of salt as an abrasive to start, then add the rest. Yours sounds easier.

    Looks perfect, Hip. Nothing is better than a great Caesar--and the Anchovies are a MUST. They get a bad rap (cheap, bony ones aren't great), but the good ones kick ASS.

    Yeah, as I get older I enjoy them more and more. I use the Trader Joes brand but picked up a jar of Crown Prince that I will use on the next batch. You can use different kinds of mustards and vinegars if you want some variations. Some mix parmesan with it but I generally opt for the shaved on top.

    Can you make it without the anchovies? I know its the big part of the dressing.

    I suppose but its kind of like making Blue Cheese dressing without the Blue Cheese. If its an Anchovy thing try using only a 1/2 can and chopping them super fine.

    It's funny...I can't stand anchovies, but I love Caesar dressing. I've been using either Newman's Own or Ken's Steakhouse brands, and found them both to be some of the best off-the-shelf.

    But I'll definitely have to try your recipe, Hip!
