Today’s recipe is for all you backyard BBQers. You can’t have a good cookout without a good salad, and nothing makes a good salad better than a great dressing. This is one of the best Caesar Dressings, period. The best part? No raw egg yolks to worry about! Just mix everything together and serve. If you can let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours, the flavors will blend together beautifully.
