Creamy Caesar Dressing – the best homemade salad dressing. The flavor is spot on and no anchovies are needed! You will never buy it in a store again.
Homemade salad dressings are one of my favorite homemade recipes to make. Forget the store-bought kind, grab fresh ingredients and a blender (or a mini food processor) and make a jar of homemade dressing that is absolutely delicious, just like my Italian Salad Dressing. It comes together in a jar! This Creamy Caesar Dressing is spot on when it comes to the flavor and texture. It’s creamy and tangy, just like a classic Ceasar dressing is supposed to be. This dressing is gluten-free if you use GF Worcestershire sauce and can be made vegan by using vegan mayo and Parmesan or nutritional yeast. Make a jar and drizzle over the Perfect Caesar Salad!
A classic Caesar dressing is made with
- lemon juice,
- olive oil,
- Worcestershire sauce,
- Dijon mustard,
- Parmesan cheese,
- salt and pepper
I substituted the egg with mayonnaise and skipped anchovies as the Worcestershire sauce gives it just the right amount of the typical Caesar dressing flavor. I am not a fan of anchovies and would not want to buy the paste just for one recipe.
- Start by gathering all of the ingredients.
- Add all to a blender jar or mini food processor bowl and blend until creamy and smooth.
- Slowly add olive oil and blend. Add Parmesan cheese and blend well.
- Your salad dressing is ready to be served or you can store it in a jar with lid in your fridge for up to 1 week.
How to make it without anchovies?
I personally do not like anchovies and I didn’t use them in this recipe. The taste is still perfect thanks to the Worcestershire sauce.
