Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Before Susanne and Joseph were married, Susanne's friends threw her a "recipe shower." All the guests were asked to provide at least one recipe. This was one of those recipes. It is easy to make and is one of the best salad dressings I have ever had. I usually make it in a 2 cup quantity. It lasts in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks.

Pour this over some cut or shredded romaine, toss in a few croutons and you have an excellent Caesar salad.

If you're queasy about the anchovy paste, don't be. It adds a nutty undertone and a nice layer of flavor. It is not fishy at all.
