Caesar Salad Dressing

My friend, Margie made this dressing and I found it to be exceptional. I'm kind of a caesar dressing snob. Usually they are just too benign for my taste. Or complicated/messy (the traditional one calls for raw egg). This one is from Epicurious and I adapted it slightly. Ingredients: 2 (make that 4) cloves garlic 1 tsp anchovy paste 2 T fresh lemon juice 1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard 1 tsp Worchestershire sauce 1 cup mayonnaise 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese Directions: In bowl combine all ingredients and add fresh ground pepper to taste. Serve over romaine lettuce and add croutons.
