Every expensive, table-side prepared Caesar I had did have anchovies. I learned later that the original had Worcestershire sauce, which, surprise, surprise, contains anchovies. I make mine with the sauce nowadays. We don't like the anchovies enough to buy a container then have it sit in the fridge until I throw them away!

You should perhaps consider buying a tube of Anchovy paste. It works well in the dressing and it can be used to perk up soups, stews, tomato sauces and many more! It last longer in the fridge and tastes less harsh than anchovy fillets.

I have done that in the past and did use it. It isn't all that easily obtained locally, though, and haven't bought it in a few years. It's sort of like Vietnamese fish sauce. I like it a little, but only seem to find it in bottles that last me years. Come to think, maybe a dash of that would zip up a Caesar!

I find mine at most Deli's and the fish sauce could work for a Ceasar Dressing I'm sure

Oh yummy! Toasted Baguettes with Anchovies or Pizza with Anchovies and capers! I really like white anchovies but you don't see them often here :(

I had forgotten about the anchovies. I haven't made it in years but my favorite recipe in the NYT cookbook, I believe uses anchovies. I think a few small pieces are a nice addition to the salad.

It seems that it is not a very clear issue. Read what Wiki says:

Caesar salad - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It's always been a controversial issue. Most folks I know go with the anchovies if they like them and not if they don't. Truth to tell, does it really matter?

Over the years, any time I've ordered it in a restaurant anchovies were always involved one way or another.

OTOH, I don't really like wikipedia as an authority. Anyone can enter info to it.

Reminds me of a russian salad called O'Livie(r). There thousands of recipes and all are different. Though majority agree on the idea. But everybody is extremely pationate on the fact that their recipe is the original one. It is much harder to proove anything though, becasue the recipe is from the 19-th century.
