I first had Caesar Salad in New York when we visited in ... can't remember but it was before 7/11. I really liked it and over the last year or so became aware that Sainsburys were selling the dressing in bottles. (Yes, I know they've probably been selling it for years but I only just noticed!) So began my search for the prefect taste.
The most recent bottle to join the collection is Newman's Own Creamy Caesar Dressing. Now Paul Newman wouldn't lie to me, would he? If he says it's good enough to carry his name it must be authentic, right? Wrong.
But last week, while in Devon, I had Caesar salad in a restaurant and it was yummy and I noticed that they made their own dressing and it stated 'Contains anchovies'. Contains anchovies? I have read even the very small print on Newman's Own and it makes no mention of anchovies.
So, with my brain ticking rather slowly, I've come to the conclusion I'll have to make Liz's Own. I've been out and bought the anchovies and I'll let you know the result after dinner (of chicken Caesar salad).
