This Homemade Classic Caesar Salad has a homemade creamy Caesar dressing that uses anchovy paste, mayo, Parmesan, lemon and plenty of garlic!
Combine all of the ingredients into a container that you can use an immersion or hand blender in to mix the ingredients. Alternatively, you can place this all in your blender.
Process and blend all of the ingredients together, adding in more garlic and lemon to taste if you want. ( I am Ukrainian so there is always room for more garlic!) Set aside
Place the lettuce in a large bowl.
Toss with the dressing until the lettuce is coated completely.
Top with the bacon, croutons and the Parmesan. I do NOT mix it in because as you know, they all go to the very bottom!
Right before serving, mix the toppings into the top layer of lettuce, not the bottom, just slightly so that you have a layer of toppings for everyone to dig into.
This is NOT the traditional Caesar salad as that one uses egg yolks and oil as the base, not mayo. This however is my VERY favorite Caesar salad!
