The Ultimate Caesar Salad

It's easy to make your own Caesar salad dressing, seen here in this creamy version which includes white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, Worchestershire, garlic, fresh Parmesan and croutons. You can omit the anchovy paste if you like, but we recommend it for a more robust flavour.
