Back in college I had a love for caesar salad. Who doesn't? I ate those salads all the time! And then...I got sick. I think the dressing was old or made with a bad egg...and I was so so sick. And so I swore off cesar salads for life. Now that I'm several years removed from the food poisoning - I've been thinking about Caesar salad again. But the thought of raw eggs in my dressing still makes me cringe. So I came up with the idea of making a yolk free dressing. Kid and pregnant lady (me!) friendly!
I played around with the recipe and came up with this easy, no fail, Caesar dressing. I subbed mayo for oil and raw eggs. You get the same taste without the risk of food poisoning. I took a Caesar salad dressed in my homemade dressing a friend's house for dinner and they all loved it!
When making a Caesar Salad - I love Anna's homemade croutons - so good! It's also a must that you have shaved parmesan. And lots of it for that matter!
This dressing is perfect for a classic salad, but also great on a sandwich. A chicken Caesar salad will hit the spot at lunch time. So forget those raw eggs - and go for a no yolk dressing!
