This is a recipe given to me by a friend, she got it from the grandmother of a very successful restaurant owner, who has modified the original recipe. I really like grandmas better. I make the salad dressing and store it in the refrigerator for no more than 3 weeks, if it lasts that long. The salad is then an easy quick meal or side dish. People who hate anchovies rave about this salad and then I tell them they are eating anchovies, no one pushes it away. They usually reach for seconds.

How to Make Casaboro Salad


  1. Combine the first nine salad dressing ingredients in a blender container and process until smooth. Add oil in a slow steady stream while blending. Store in a closed container in the refrigerator until ready to make your salad. I added the gelatin to the recipe to stablize the dressing a little better but it is optional.
  2. Wash and drain lettuces, peppers, onions.
  3. Tear lettuces and chop peppers and onions
  4. Add cheeses. I usually use more chesse than the recipe calls for. Toss then add dressing, not too much just enough to pull it together. Place in refrigerator for about 30 minutes to 2 hours. When ready to serve add the croutons or place in a bowl for folks to add on their own if desired.
