Easy Caesar Salad Dressing

When you can make something as delicious and simple as Easy Caesar Salad Dressing, there’s no reason to buy it at the grocery store. 

Everyone loves Caesar Salad but the idea of using a raw egg to make a traditional dressing is daunting.  Now, you don’t have to worry…the Fancy Pants Kitchen has got you!  This recipe comes together easily, doesn’t need raw egg yolks to thicken it and you can leave out the anchovies if it’s not your jam (personally I love them but it’s okay to substitute fish sauce if anchovies make you squeamish).

Creamy and thick, this Easy Caesar Salad Dressing gets it’s oomph from combining mayo and Greek yogurt, along with garlic, lemon juice, Dion mustard, Worcestershire sauce and anchovy paste (or fish sauce). Combine it all in a medium-sized bowl.

Add the Parmesan cheese and stir.  Slowly whisk in the olive oil.  Taste it and if necessary, add more lemon juice, salt or anchovy paste.  You can also thin it if it’s too thick with a little milk.

All that’s left to do it drizzle it over romaine lettuce!
