Salad: My Favorite Caesar Salad

Years ago (at the advice of a friend) I ordered these recipe cards that came once a month...along with a bill.  It didn't take me long to stop b/c I just didn't find much I liked in the series of cards, and I just didn't want to pay for recipe cards.  This dressing/salad recipe is the one reason it was all worth it.  I really like Caesar Salad, I really love this salad from the dressing to the...well...to the dressing?!?!  It's easy.  It's good.  I make it a lot.  Really, all I make is the dressing, and I just throw the rest of the stuff in, but I  like this dressing! I would go so far as to say it's my favorite Caesar, but that's probably just b/c I know there are no anchovies in this version!
Dressing:  Use a blender and blend 2 cloves of garlic, chopped, 1/4 c. olive oil, 1/4 c. Parmesan cheese, shredded, 1 T. Worcestershire Sauce, 1/4 t. dry mustard, 1/2 t. salt, 2 T. lemon juice (about 1/2 of a lemon). 
To Put the Salad Together, You will Need:  One head of romaine lettuce, chopped;  2 chicken breast, seasoned, grilled, and sliced; two hard boiled eggs, sliced, 1 package of croutons, 1/4 c. Parmesan cheese.  Dressing.  Toss, and serve.

O this is perfect! I always wondered if you could make a caesar salad without anchovies and it still taste good. I am saving this and will try it soon. Thanks!
