Caesar dressing and romaine are a strong duo -- the lettuce is not overwhelmed by the dressing, which is also good over a tomato salad. All hail this classic dressing, with bold, briny tang from garlic, capers, anchovies, and lemon.

Strong but delicious--a little bit goes a long way. It is also delicious with spinach salad or as a quick marinade for mushrooms.
