I like this as much as the traditional Caesar dressing—honestly! If you don’t tell, no one will know the difference. It’s best made a day or two in advance so that the flavors can marry. It keeps refrigerated and covered for up to 2 weeks, so I often make a double batch. That way, I have it ready to top romaine lettuce hearts garnished with whatever other crunchy vegetable or sprouts I have on hand.
COMBINE ALL THE ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Taste and season with additional salt, pepper, lemon juice, or anchovy, if you think it needs it. It’s a good idea to let the flavors develop for a while before you decide it needs stronger seasoning.
