Homemade Caesar Salad Dressing

Serves: 4

Though most people buy Caesar salad dressing in a bottle, homemade is incredibly easy to make and tastes so much better than store bought. There are many variations but this rich and creamy version is the one my whole family loves. It’s not too garlicky and not too fishy — it’s just right.

Yield: Makes 1-1/3 cups (enough for about 10 starter salads)

Total Time:


2 small garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon anchovy paste (found near the tuna fish in the supermarket)
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup freshly grated parmigiano-reggiano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 heads chopped Romaine lettuce
1 cup croutons
1/4 cup freshly grated or shaved Parmesan cheese


In a medium bowl, whisk together the garlic, anchovy paste, lemon juice, Dijon mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Add the mayonnaise, Parmigiano-Reggiano, salt and pepper and whisk until well combined. Taste and adjust to your liking.

Toss with Romaine lettuce, croutons, and top with Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
