    A good basic recipe, however, the oil definitely needs to be cut back. I think the confusion about the "creamy" part of the dressing is due to the wording. The dressing really isn't supposed to become creamy so to speak, but "emulsified". In order to achieve this, you must DRIZZLE the oil into your food processor or blender very, very slowly. If a creamy consistancy is what you prefer, there are other recipes on this site that call for mayo. Thanks Michelle!  -  01 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This is THE best recipe for Caesar Salad I have EVER tasted. It was a littttttle to oily though, so try adding some pepper. Otherwise it is THE best!  -  31 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
