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.


  • 2 ounces anchovy fillet *
  • 12 cloves garlic, mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan, fresh, grated
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper, coarsely ground
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

* The anchovy are packaged in small tins. Two ounces is about 12 fillets or 2 tablespoons.


  1. Place all except oil in food processor.
  2. Process and add oil slowly while processor is running.
  3. Adjust salt and pepper if needed.
