    I have finaly found a caesar salad dressing recipe that I truly enjoyed. The lemon juice and red wine vinegar cuts the mayo taste. I topped mine with sliced almonts and salty sunflower seeds, instead of croutons and cheese. Quick, easy and delicious!

    This is the recipe I use for just the 2 of us.(lighter on the sodium than my other recipe using anchovies, which I make when I have a lot of people.) It has just the right amount of tang and I double the recipe and keep it in the 'fridge until needed. I also use low-fat mayo.
