I can't even start to count how many times we have heard Jenny over the semester preach about how simple it is to make so many items we find and buy in the grocery store. I am all about making meals from scratch but I could use some work on my ingredients scratch making. I decided a creamy ceaser dressing would be a great place to start. Bittman has a basic recipe on page 203. I have always loved steak and ceaser salads, I was lucky enough to grow up with a mother that actually put time into making them from scratch, but only on occasion.
