Caesar Salad Dressing with Gouda

Caesar salad dressing is incredibly easy to make and so much better than bottled dressings from the supermarket.  While a traditional Caesar dressing uses raw egg, this version uses mayonnaise as a base making it even easier to whip up....and there no worries about serving raw eggs. Grated good quality Gouda elevates this dressing even more.   Serve with lots of shaved Gouda and crunchy croutons.

Whenever I make this dressing I make a big batch and keep it in a sealed container in the fridge.  It lasts for weeks and makes an easy weeknight dinner...toss torn Romaine with the dressing and add some grilled chicken or shrimp to top off the salad.
Recipe developed for Beemster
