Does anyone out there have a recipe for the ceasar dressing on Carnival? I found it online however it's metric and a huge batch? My husband loves this and I want to make it for him. Thanks Angie
It's not always possible to just cut down a recipe by dividing the ingredients by "x"--the scale of the recipe makes a difference. There are typically three kinds of Caesar dressing. The first is the "authentic" kind made with a coddled egg, and it must be made fresh every time. The second is basically like the first but either made without egg or with a pasteurized egg product and is more like a vinaigrette. The third is made using mayonnaise as a base, with flavoring ingredients to make it taste like a Caesar dressing, and it is a creamy dressing.
My suggestion is to take the ingredients you see listed in the recipe you found online and compare them to authentic/traditional recipes or my third suggestion, seeing which it matches best. Then start with a basic recipe and tinker, based on the proportions in the "big" recipe, until you get what you like.
My recipe that I use at home is not at all authentic, but we like it. It starts with approximately 1 cup mayonnaise, 1 tsp. anchovy paste, 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce, juice of 1 small or 1/2 large lemon, 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar, 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, 1 tsp. Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon garlic powder (not garlic salt), several grinds of black pepper, and 1/2 to 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese. Stir all that together and refrigerate overnight before using. This makes enough for several salads--toss the desired amount with chopped or torn Romaine lettuce and garnish with croutons and/or cut up tomatoes as desired. As with all such recipes, you can add more or less of the ingredients to taste, especially the anchovy paste.
