Caesar Salad

I grew up loving salt. I couldn't get enough. I would sit on the couch, watch Barney, and suck on a bullion cube. I would definitely prefer a bag of potato chips over a cupcake any day. Another thing I really enjoyed snacking on were anchovies (weird I know). My mom couldn't believe it when she saw me eating the anchovies out of the can while she was making her Caesar salad dressing. Still to this day my mom's Caesar salad dressing is the best I have ever had. I love making it myself now, and if you love Caesar salad and anchovies as much as I do, definitely try this recipe, I guarantee you will love it!!
