Julia's Caesar over Mixed Greens, a non-traditional Caesar Salad

How to make Julia's Caesar, delicious, freshly made, and contains no raw egg! 

This quickly composed salad is not the recipe I am sharing, no not at all! Today's recipe is for the salad dressing that you see drizzled over the greens. Julia's Caesar is a simple to make, delicious caesar dressing you will enjoy again and again! Welcome to Salad Dressing Week here at Scratch Made Food! & DIY Homemade Household.

Julia's Caesar over Mixed Greens. Deliciously different!

Often when we enjoy a salad with our meals it is not a traditional salad in a recipe sort of way. For example, what you see over this platter of salad greens is a Caesar dressing, yet there are no croutons scattered over the greens, and it is more than just romaine lettuce.

A variety of greens is often on our table in salad form, and I have come to not only enjoy the fresh taste but crave a salad with such flavor and variety. This salad contained Romaine, Tuscan Kale, and Baby Spinach.

We also happen to love avocados, and as it turns out, they are a perfect "bowl" to hold a bit of extra dressing!

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • garlic
  • anchovy fillets or paste
  • lemon juice
  • red wine vinegar
  • pepper
  • mayonnaise
  • olive oil
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • salt
You will also need the following:
  • whisk
  • storage/shaker jar
  • liquid measuring cup 
  • citrus juicer
  • measuring spoons
Now we are ready to begin!

Julia's Caesar over Mixed Greens. Shake up your salad routine!
