Commander's Palace Garlic-Anchovy Salad Dressing

Here is a wonderful salad dressing I received from my buddy Bill in New Orleans. I finally made it earlier this week and decided it was good enough to keep. It is from the Commanders Palace Restaurant...the famous training grounds of many great chefs.

He is a neighbor of the Brennan's and every now and again they share some of their recipes with him. This is a variation of a Caesar Salad. It looks awful, but please try it as the garlic and anchovies are blended in just the right proportions to "balance" each other.
