I was talking abour eating at home, not in a restaurant. You sit down at my mother's table and start giving orders, she'll take you outside and throw you under a train. That woman has little patience and no sense of humor!
If it's a traditional Italian dinner, it doesn't matter. If an Italian restaurant is serving the salad course first, it's because it is catering to American-style dining.

Try it that way sometime. It's MUCH lighter than using already prepared mayo.
sounds wonderful

Also, Caesar salads are not Italian per se. The creator of the salad was Italian but he was living in Mexico and dish was just thrown together at the last instant. To make it more "Italian", many versions use anchovy fillets or anchovy paste in the dressing but the orginal recipe did not contain any anchovies. It used Worcestershire sauce which gave it the anchovy taste. Besides the Worcestershire, the original recipe contained eggs, oil, lemon juice, parmesan, salt, and pepper. That's it.
any way you cut the mustard just give me one, I love Caesar Salad
