I am in the habit of making my own dressings now, no more store bought. So I needed a good Ceasar and came upon this recipe. It was so easy, quick and delicious. My husband even liked it. I did switch out the mayo for non-fat Greek yogurt. Still delicious.

Very flavorful and easy to make. I did cut the amount if oil in half and liked better.

We were out of our bottle dressing, so gave this a try. Quite good, but only used 2 tsp olive oil, found that to be lots. Enjoyed the little kick from the Dijon mustard. Will definitely make this again.

This was a great Caesar dressing that can be made in a small quantity (a la dinner for two). Very even balance of flavors with the right amount of spice, creamy, and tang to live w/ the romaine, parm, and a bit of bleu cheese that I always add. This is my new New Year's Eve tradition. Pros: great flavor & easy to make Cons: none
