"I cut back on the oil and increased the Worcestershire, also omitted the lemon squeeze on the greens. This was very well received by my family and dinner guests! Will become a frequently used recipe!"

"Love the salad dressing!!! Didn't squeeze lemon over salad. The red wine vinegar gives the salad plenty of tang."

"Ditto that! Schelby is too modest - its title should be: The Best Caesar salad Ever! Look up the whole "Editors Meal" from 1996 it is part of - Parmesan chicken and Onion-Roasted Potatoes - all of them easy and great-tasting! I've made this salad for the last 5-6 Thanksgivings and it disappears before anything else. The only change I made is I get the deli counter at my supermarket to FRESH GRATE the Parmesan or I shred it fresh from a block of cheese - makes the recipe even better! One year I really got carried away and made homemade croutons."
