CAN I SUBSTITUTE ANCHOVIES IN THIS?

You can, but if you want a real authentic Homemade Caesar Salad Dressing real anchovies are the way to go. 

If you decide to substitute it the best substitution to use would be Asian Fish Sauce, which is made with fermented anchovies.

CAN I USE BOTTLED LEMON JUICE?

When I make a homemade sauce that uses fresh lemon juice I stick with that. Bottled lemon juice does not have the same flavor as fresh.

So I would not in good faith advise a substitution of the bottled for fresh, trust me on this one!

  • Freshly grated cheese is what you really want to use in this recipe, try not to substitute.
  • Use fresh lemon juice for this and not bottled.
  • Don’t forget to remove the backbone of the anchovy.
  • You can substitute Asian Fish Sauce for the anchovy.
