Be forewarned before trying this salad: it's not what you typically think of when you think of Caesar salad. With that said....
A friend of my brought it as her dish to our cooking club last night. WOW!!! It was so good, all the ladies just yummed and cooed over it all through dinner. The only reason she left with any was because we were all too full from the other dishes to keep going. It's now my new favorite salad, and I had to rush to the store today to get the ingredients to treat myself again for supper tonight.
So what's it like? So fresh!!! There's not much lemon in it, but just enough to really give it that summery spark that is so nice on an evening horizon dancing with lightning bugs. You might think YUCK at the anchovies, but they're not strong...just enough to give the dressing an extra dimension on the palette. And none of the other ingredients really stood out; rather, they just seemed to round out the flavor as an additional layer.
If you're willing to try a Caesar with a lighter sauce, definitely give this recipe a shot! Gotta go, I'm headed to the kitchen!
