What is Caesar Salad Dressing?

This Caesar salad dressing consists of mayonnaise, garlic, Parmesan cheese, Worcestershire, mustard, lemon juice, and anchovy fillets.

There’s an addicting quality to this recipe that comes from the anchovy’s and garlic.  Even if your not an anchovy lover, I highly suggest you give this recipe a try!

What kind of lettuce should I use with this Caesar dressing recipe?

For the classic Caesar salad, I recommend using romaine lettuce but I have also tried this dressing with kale and iceberg lettuce, which are both delicious as well.

Do you have any tips on making this homemade Caesar dressing recipe?

  • Use a food processor.  Just throw everything in, minus the lettuce of course.
  • Use real mayo made from eggs, oil and vinegar from brands such as Hellmans or Best Foods.
  • Refrigerate leftover dressing in a covered jar or container for up to 1 week.
  • Use a salad spinner to make sure the lettuce is very dry, otherwise, it will water down the dressing.

  1. Hello! It looks like you add olive oil in the pictures, but its not listed in the ingredients or instructions. Is that needed?

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hey Megan! There is no olive oil used in the dressing. The picture was an oversight and thanks for pointing that out to us!

      • Thanks! I ended up adding some when I made this – the dressing was a hit! Even with my kiddos. Thanks!

        • LowCarbingAsian

          Awesome and glad to know it was a hit, esp with your kids since as parents, we know the struggle of getting vegetables in them are REAL! As for the oil, we found that it didn’t add much to the recipe and actually contributed to separation.

  2. What mayonnaise do you use?

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hey Melissa! For this one, we just use regular American mayo like your Trader Joe’s/Best Foods/Hellmann’s, etc.
