Caesar-Style Dressing

Like my mother and father, I not only like a good Caesar salad, but I enjoy it with anchovies (much to Ed’s dismay).  I know that traditional Caesar salad dressing can be very high in calories, so when my friend, Sarah S, turned me onto this recipe recently I was very happy.

It’s much lighter, but still has that underlying Caesar taste.  This comes from the Worcestershire sauce that contains many ingredients, including anchovies – a key ingredient in a traditional Caesar salad.  I like to use it with baby romaine lettuce leaves and grated Pecorino-Romano cheese – to make a simple, but tasty salad.  The combination of this dressing with the baby romaine lettuce are a great take on the traditional Caesar salad.  This is one of a few homemade salad dressings I always have on hand in my refrigerator.

A bit of food trivia… did you know Worcestershire sauce has been sold commercially since 1837?
