"I did add a bit of Worcestershire sauce for some smokiness, but overall this is a really good, classic Caesar salad dressing recipe."

"very happy with the taste ease combo! since this is supposed to be easy, some tips for noobs: do not substitute "Dijon-mayonnaise blend" with pure dijon -- that would be too much dijon. i tried. also, a garlic clove is not an entire garlic bulb/head - it's just one of the pieces."

"i liked the recipe but here is what it was missing for me: Red Wine Vinegar and a dash or Worsteshire sauce as well as some fresh cracked black pepper. i omitted the milk and dressed the salad & tossed before serving, i thought that made it pretty darn delicious!"
