Homemade Caesar Dressing

Can I just say that before I knew what I was missing by making my own Caesar dressing I was an avid purchaser of the processed kind.  You know, the kind that plops out through that little hole.
Not anymore!

It is so simple, virtually flawless.  A blender, a handful of ingredients that you likely have already and viola.
Creamy happiness.

You may remember that I have this crazy issue with using raw eggs so this recipe is made with mayo instead of yolks. 
I have a feeling that I may try it with pasteurized eggs soon however because I would like a lighter feeling dressing.  I`ll let ya know how that goes.

For now its a simple side dish but in the future I will use this in my mashed potatoes (because I like it), potato salad or even as a condiment or dipping sauce for pizza or veggies.

Place all ingredients in a blender and pulse 10 or so times to incorporate.
Add to fresh lettuce, crumbled bacon and homemade croutons for the perfect side or main meal or refrigerate up to 1 week.

  1. Sounds wonderful! I love Ceasar dressings that don't have raw eggs in them. I'll be trying this one soon, thanks for sharing!
