OMG, this is the World’s Best Caesar Salad Dressing and the only recipe you need. Honest, once you try this you will never use store bought again. I hadn’t made it in many years, but it was always a favourite of my clients back when I was a caterer and recently made it for my family.
Don’t worry, this is a simple to make recipe, and while it does take more work than just buying dressing, there is no doubt it’s worth the effort. My youngest son has always loved Caesar Salad, he orders it whenever we go out, he eats if for lunches and snacks, and he’d have it every day if he could.
Jonathan’s reaction when he first got a taste of this salad was priceless, OMG, AWESOME SAUCE Mom, that’s AWESOME SAUCE as he pretended to faint on the floor. Maybe you had to be there, but we laughed so hard!
Anyways, back to cooking!
This is a deliciously tangy, very garlicky (you need fresh garlic here), cheesy Caesar Salad Dressing. Please don’t leave out the anchovy paste, I know; you think you hate them but trust me, they add a depth of flavour that really makes this dressing. This dressing does NOT taste fishy at all. CROSS MY HEART!
This dressing is thicker than your normal Caesar Salad dressing that comes in a jar, however this is what you are looking for. Once it is tossed with the salad greens, and bacon and croutons, it’s perfection.
And it’s not JUST for Caesar Salad either:
Make a big batch, and store it in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, you won’t be sorry. It is great as a dip, can be used as a spread on Chicken Sandwiches and I’ve used it to make Chicken Caesar Baked Casserole too, which is AMAZING.

One last thing; since we eat with our eyes, I like to serve my Caesar Salad in a traditional Wooden Salad Bowl. Prepare your Romaine, Croutons, and Shredded fresh Parmesan and place it in the bowl. Add about 1/4 for a full bowl and place it on top of the salad. Don’t toss until you sit down at the table, otherwise you will end up with super wilted soggy lettuce.
