I've tried many Caesar Salad Dressings and don't like most of them, so I came up with my own recipe. Everyone who has tried this dressing just loves it, and I am always giving away the recipe. This salad dressing should be made a day ahead so that it has time to thicken; I always double the recipe so that I can have it more than once; I make this dressing in a 32 oz. jar so that it is easier to mix.
