Houston’s Spicy Caesar Dressing

Another one of their famous Dressings ! If you are concerned about the raw egg yolk, please omit this from the recipe.  This dressing is special because it has a little kick to it, the Thai Chili paste, coriander and cumin add a spicy depth to this without it being too hot to enjoy.

    I like it a bit thicker, so I add one whole egg, in addition to the yolk. I don’t keep anchovies on hand, but I do have fish sauce! So I sub in one tsp fish sauce for the anchovies. I mix with my stick mixer.

    This was really good! My husband loves Caesar salad so when he tried this dressing he was in heaven he loves spicy stuff as well. I added a little extra chili past to make it a little spicier for him.
