I think Caesar salad may be my ultimate comfort food-of-choice. For the longest time I’ve been doing eggless versions at home with sherry vinegar, lemon, garlic, capers, anchovy paste, Dijon, EVOO, etc. However, I just came across a new rendition of a Caesar-like dressing and after the first time making it, I got the feeling that it will supplant all my egg and eggless versions for years to come.
Diana Henry, a UK cookbook author and food writer, substitutes almonds in place of much of the olive oil in her latest cookbook, A Change of Appetite. I felt inclined to add a little Dijon and capers as an homage to my old recipes, but with or without, this recipe is simply delicious and no one will ever guess its nutty secret.
