Easy Caesar Dressing

I got off easy. My job for new years eve was making Caesar salad. Here is an easy dressing. I do not do anchovy's as a personal preference.

Easy Caesar Dressing

2 anchovy fillets (or to taste)
2 fresh garlic cloves (or to taste) (I have used pre minced or chopped before also)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup half and half or milk
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
salt and pepper
2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
milk or half and half, for thinning if necessary

  1. In a small mini food processor, process/mince the anchovy fillets and garlic together until finely minced (do this together and firstly, otherwise it will not get minced properly with the other ingredients).
  2. Add in the remaining ingredients, and process for 30 seconds, or more until well mixed.
  3. Adjust seasonings to taste.
  4. Thin milk or half and half for a thinner consistency if desired.
  5. Store in fridge, covered in a glass container for 3 or more hours before using (the flavors become stronger when left in the fridge for a longer time).
  6. Toss desired amount of dressing with Romaine lettuce and croutons.
  7. Sprinkle with more grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
