    A must have is anchovies on a Caesar salad. I had to buy my own at Krogers. The wife won't even buy them...

    Romaine is just a little fibrous for my palate. I'll take a plate of Bibb with a smathering of baby arugula topped with anchovies and a splash of good balsamic and evoo.

    My wife loves romaine lettuce and a Caeser salad. I almost always forget to grow her some.

    Some cooks will grind the anchovies up and mix them in the salad dressing. So girls and Nancy boys don't see them...:D

    I agree a proper Caesar needs to lean heavy on the anchovies and raw egg.

    Anchovies are a main ingredient in Caesar dressing

    I prefer the anchovies lightly sautéed personally. Good either way.

  12. X2 on the sautéed, adds another layer of flavor.

    Never had an anchovy
     
  15. Kinda like a sardine but a darker flesh fish with a stronger taste.
