From the Refrigerator: Caesar Salad Dressing

Caesar Salad is by far my favorite salad to whip up when friends are coming by for dinner. Everyone loves the homemade dressing!

The secret is easy – anchovies. (I always keep a little glass jar of them in the fridge.) These little suckers are the key to a full-flavored Caesar Salad Dressing!

Caesar Salad Dressing
(makes 3/4 cup)

4 cloves garlic
4 egg yolks
Juice from half a lemon
1 tbsp parmesan cheese
4 anchovies
1/3 cup olive oil
sea salt
fresh ground pepper

In a glass bowl mix garlic, egg yolks, lemon juice, parmesan cheese and anchovies. Using an immersion blender, beat until all ingredients are combined and mixture is almost smooth. In a slow stream, add the olive oil while still beating with the blender. It is necessary to add the oil slowly so the mixture emulsifies. Once the dressing has a thick consistency, season with salt and pepper.

Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Enjoy!
