"I came, I saw, I conquered." -Julius Caesar

The refrigerator light goes on...

I love Caesar Salad and there are a lot of variations on the classic dressing. There are no less than three variations already on the Dr. Gourmet website: Classic Caesar, South of the Border Caesar, and White Bean Caesar. Why do another?

This recipe slightly tweaks what I think is a very good version but the roasted garlic brings a much more mellow flavor to the dressing. The difference is subtle unless you taste them side by side. I think that this version is not necessarily better, just mellower.

Roasted garlic makes a great foundation for salad dressings and sauces. It is always worth having some on hand for that but you can also use individual cloves tossed into a pasta sauce or salad at the last minute to add a rich umami flavor to the dish without overpowering the other ingredients.
