Caesar Mayonnaise Dressing


I love Caesar salad.  Who doesn't?  It's light, refreshing, tangy, and let's face it, all together way delicious.  While I enjoy it all year round, it seems even better when the weather warms up.  This salad is composed of very few ingredients so it is imperative that each part is as delicious as possible.  Making this salad taste like an epicurean home run requires very fresh romaine, fine quality Parmesan cheese, homemade seasoned croutons, and a wonderful dressing.  I make a few different recipes of this dressing, but when I found this recipe, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven.  It takes a little help from prepared mayonnaise and because of this, the dressing always comes out thick and creamy without having to worry about emulsifying the ingredients.  It also is really quick to whip up.  I bumped up the garlic and lemon juice and added some fresh cracked black pepper and now it's just perfect for me.  Next time you're having a hankering for Caesar Salad give this recipe a try.

This recipe is at my new site. Hope to see you there :) I've posted a lot of new things.

  6. My super favourite Caesar salad dressing is from Ad Hoc Cookbook BUT you have to make your own mayonnaise which is time consuming. I like this one, especially since you don't need to make your own mayo and it has LOTS of anchovies which I love. I'll try it next time.

  22. I love Caesar salad but can stand the ones that use whole anchovies {{shivers}}. Yours looks good, I think I can handle anchovy paste.

  23. Great Caesar dressing recipe, Kathleen! A no-fail. But you're right...everything HAS to be fresh in a salad and I love homemade croutons!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Caesar salad is SUCH a classic. I love that you made your own dressing. That definitely makes it infinitely better.

  27. Finally a Ceasar salad dressing I can teach my best friend how to make. She loves Ceasar salad but I can't tell her what goes into it.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I make a similar version -- but with more olive oil and only a bit of mayo. Love how the mayo creates that creamy emulsion without using a raw egg.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yummy! I can't eat a Caesar salad anymore if there is not some form of anchovy in it! Delicious!

  40. I adore caesar salad!! Where in the grocery would you find anchovy paste? I've never made my own caesar, so I have no idea where to look.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hi Kathleen,

    Thanks for stopping by to visit.

    I love Caesar and this looks so much easier (and safer) than the raw egg yolk dressing that is traditional.

    Great idea, thanks for sharing it!

  44. Perfect timing on this post! I'm doing the dollar a day grocery challenge, just got 6 heads of romaine for under $3. We're big fans of Caesar salads but usually buy expensive dressing! I already make my own croutons - add this recipe and now I'm all set! :-)

  46. I love ceasar salad but, to my knowledge, I've never had anything with anchovy paste. What kind of flavor does this add to the salad? Is it fishy tasting?

    ReplyDelete

  52. As someone who always orders extra caesar dressing- this sounds delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Grins, I knew I bought anchovy paste for a reason. Course Ole Sweetie-Pi spied it and has gotten all ooogly over it, so I'm going to have to wait and sneak it on him. I can't wait; yeah, I'm a little mean like that, hahahahah

    ReplyDelete
  54. Great recipe. Thank you. My 8yr old son made it for us. We found 4 cloves of garlic a bit much, so new have knocked it back to 2. Too each their own.

    Thanks again!
