This Caesar is on the mild side, but you can increase the amounts of garlic, mustard and Worcestershire sauce if you like.

Tips

If you like anchovies in your Caesar salad, you can substitute them for all or part of the bacon (replace 1 slice bacon with 1 finely chopped anchovy fillet). Add them with the garlic.
