If you prefer not to use the raw egg yolk in this recipe, substitute 1 tablespoon of store-bought mayonnaise. The croutons are best made as close to serving time as possible.

    I've made this many times. So many that I don't even need the recipe anymore. My family loves this salad. I have tweaked it a little bit to suit our tastes. I use one clove of garlic, one anchovy and good quality romano instead of parm. I don't always add croutons, but if you do they are delicious as is in the recipe. Finally, I don't know how you can mash up a garlic clove and anchovy using a wooden spoon, I use the tines of a fork and it works perfectly.

    I made this salad a few times, making modifications each time. The croutons are better without oil or salt and just need a little garlic (there's enough oil in the dressing, especially if you use mayo in place of egg yolks). With that, I would not put garlic in the dressing. The first time I made it with the two cloves it was almost inedible. There is no need for salt anywhere in the salad; the anchovies and parmesan are salty enough. I used just three anchovies and they added plenty of taste.

    I made this after seeing how easy it looked on Whatever Girls. I had to try the anchovies. WOW they are salty. The dressing turned out sooo good. I will make it again. Can't wait to make it for my mom!
