Classic Caesar Salad with Homemade Caesar Salad Dressing

A plate of a classic caesar salad

I have been on a caesar salad addiction the last week. Everyday I ate a bowl of a classic caesar salad. It all started when my sister-in-law made it on our recent family retreat up in Canada I usually prefer a homemade salad dressing since I can modify it and I know what is in it, so I went ahead and made a homemade caesar salad dressing. The original recipe of the dressing I adapted from, but I modified it just a bit and didn't add the cheese to the dressing to save on calories.
