Comments: Most of us have a love-hate relationship with Caesar dressing love the flavor, hate the high fat content and the raw egg. This easy version eliminates all the negatives, deliciously. It will keep in the refrigerator up to 2 days, but each day the garlic will become a little more powerful. If you won't be using it immediately, use a half clove of garlic instead.
