Does Dijon Mustard Belong in Homemade Caesar Salad Dressing?

I’ve had too many mustard-forward dressings.

I thought the raw egg was there for the emulsion.

Absolutely it does. Without it the dressing would not taste like classic Caesar dressing.

I’ll tell you what doesn’t belong - white anchovies.

They don’t pair well at all.

Make a different salad. Don't use mustard. Caesar contains Dijon by definition. I don't mind the dressing or the P-R, but Romaine is my least favorite lettuce.

Yes, but it shouldn't dominate the "flavah." No one ingredient should, for perfect balance.

Only if it's Grey Poupon.
