Caesar Dressing ~ You’ll Never Want it at a Restaurant Again

Caesar Salad is something that many people love when they go out to eat, but rarely eat at home.  It’s a simple salad, with only three ingredients plus dressing, it makes a beautiful presentation.  This Caesar dressing is fast and easy to make, especially with the help of a blender!  Traditional Caesar dressing starts with coddled egg yolks, garlic, and anchovies.  While this Caesar dressing recipe skips the egg yolks, it does change it up a little bit with Greek yogurt, which gives this dressing a creamy texture that you are sure to love.

What Makes a Good Caesar Dressing

Good Caesar dressing starts out with garlic.  Fresh garlic makes amazing Caesar dressing with just a bit of zing to it that you’ll adore.  The more garlic you use, the hotter the dressing.  I normally make mine with six cloves, because my family loves a lot of garlic.  But my original recipe calls for just three cloves.  Plain Greek yogurt adds creaminess, while a touch of Dijon mustard adds flavor.  I always add some anchovy paste to my Caesar dressing, which adds a bit of a salty flavor.  I usually don’t like anchovies at all, but added to the dressing, it gives it a richer flavor.  Olive oil and vinegar round out the mix, adding their own touches, but also thinning out the Caesar dressing so you can pour it on your salads.

{UPDATE 11/4}

I just made this dressing again last night.  I was out of Apple Cider Vinegar so I used Red Wine Vinegar.  Since the acidity level is a little lower, I used about 1/3rd cup of Olive Oil and a little more lemon juice than is called for.  The final result was even better than the original.  I dressed the salad and there wasn’t one morsel left!  :)

From Caesar Dressing to Caesar Salad

Now that you have a delicious Caesar dressing, the fun part is making it into a salad right at your table!  You can purchase bags of chopped romaine lettuce, or whole heads that you can chop.  Place it in a large bowl, sprinkle with flaked Parmesan or Romano cheese, and top with a handful or two of croutons, then drizzle with the Caesar dressing.  Toss with some salad spoons, and your Caesar salad is ready!  It’s just that simple.  Caesar salad makes a beautiful presentation with very little work.
