Ingredients

1 clove garlic
1/2 of a clove, or 1 very small clove depending on how much you like raw garlic!
¼ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons sour cream
or thick Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 dash worcestershire sauce
optional
*
1 dash red hot pepper sauce
I use about 1/2 teaspoon of Frank's Red hot
*
¼ teaspoon black pepper
freshly ground
*
2 tablespoons olive oil, extra-virgin
2 tablespoons asiago cheese
grated
*

Directions

Peel and crush the garlic clove with a flat side of a chef's knife. Sprinkle with salt and mash the garlic into a paste using the flat side of the chef's knife. (You might find it easier to use the back of a spoon) but I use the knife.

Either whisk very vigorously in a small bowl or use a small food processor.

Add the lemon juice, sour cream (or Greek yogurt), Dijon mustard, hot pepper sauce, Worcestershire sauce and black pepper. Process or whisk until very well combined.

While whisking or with the food processor running slowly drizzle in the olive oil.

Add the grated Parmesan cheese. Mix and refrigerate until needed to combine the flavors.

Will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

A decent light Caesar dressing, lots of Caesar flavor, a bit thinner than Caesar dressings made using egg but equally as tasty.

I used Greek yogurt and added another couple of tablespoons to make it creamier. I also used 3 large garlic cloves and added about 3/4 tsp of anchovy paste. Actually, we couldnt find the paste so we bought the fillets and crush one of those to a paste.
