    3. In a blender purée garlic and anchovies with lemon juice. With blender still running, add oil in a stream until dressing is emulsified. Season with salt and pepper.

    Altered ingredient amounts. I just made this and it's very good. It's quick and easy and tastes like light caesar salad. I added more garlic and lemon juice to the dressing. It really improved the taste. Thank you for the recipe.  -  24 Jul 2008

    Good and simple, and definitely reminiscent of a Caesar salad. Open to lots of different variations if you want. Thank you for posting this!  -  07 Dec 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
