Homemade Caesar Salad Dressing Recipe
The hubby and I are trying to eat more greens this year. We both love salads as long as we have a dressing to give the salad some great flavor. We will definitely be enjoying many salads with our Copycat Olive Garden Salad Dressing. But, this past weekend we decided to make our own Caesar dressing. I am so excited we decided to make our own instead of cluttering the fridge with another dressing that happens to be full of tons of preservatives. I knew this dressing would be super tasty on our Caesar Salads.
My daughter has refused to attempt to try Caesar dressing in the past. Since we made our own at home we convinced her to just try one bite, ha ha. Well one bite turned into a large bowl of Caesar Salad tossed in homemade CaesarDressing.
The ingredients to make your Homemade Caesar Dressing are very simple. You probably have most ingredients besides the anchovies in your cabinet. Whip your few items together and you will have a creamy and full of flavor dressing in just a few minutes time.
3 Anchovy fillets
1 tbsp minced Garlic
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Egg Yolk
2 tbsp Lemon Juice
1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard
1/4 Olive Oil
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
1/4 cup Grated Parmesan
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
2 cup Croutons
3 romaine hearts, leaves separated and chopped
1/4 cup shaved Parmesan
In a blender or food processor, add drained anchovy fillets, garlic, egg yolk, lemon juice, Worcestershire and mustard.
Pulse until liquified.
Leave running and slowly add olive oil and then vegetable oil through the liquid feed.
This should produce a thick dressing.
Add in grated Parmesan and pulse to blend.
Add salt, pepper, and additional lemon juice to taste.
Refrigerate until ready to use.
Place the lettuce in a large bowl.
Drizzle with desired amount of dressing and toss until well coated.
