Last week I posted my very first salad recipe.. :) I'm obviously proud of that... and, to prove just how proud I am, you will be bombarded with salads over the next few weeks. Ok, ok, bombarded sounds quite harsh, doesn't it? Well, you will at least see a lot more salads highlighted here than you have ever seen before. Some of it has to do that I just recently found out, Chris would eat "just a salad" for dinner if it had the right ingredients. (Again, I'm loving that we have been together for so long and yet I'm still learning new things about him!) It also has to do with the fact that salads like this are very simple to put together and since I'm working such long hours lately, I can use all the help I can get when it comes to getting dinner on the table.
With that said, this is of course, about the dressing, not necessarily the salad. I've been researching Caesar dressings that did not use anchovies. All of them substituted Worcestershire sauce... which was a bit of a duh moment for me... I mean Worcestershire sauce is made with anchovies!! The perfect substitution!!! And, just for fun, I added a little Sriracha too to help spice it up a bit. Now, I know the title says Caesar dressing, but don't think that just because it references a specific salad that it means it's the only salad you can use it on. That's just nonsense! Use it on a regular side salad, use it in chicken or tuna salad, us it to marinate chicken... I really don't care what you do, as long as you give it a try!!
