Homemade Caesar Salad Dressing

Have you ever tried home-made zesty Caesar salad dressing? Once you have, you’ll never want to go back to the plain tasting bottle from your local store again. The secret is using the right balance of fresh ingredients that will have you cleaning your plate with your favorite fresh bread. This is a very easy recipe and it does not take long to prepare. Add your favorite protein to the salad and you are good to go. I used shrimp, home-made croutons and fresh Parmesan cheese for my version.
