What are the ingredients in caesar dressing?
One thing that has always deterred me from making creamy caesar dressing is the anchovy paste. There is just something about it that makes my face pucker up.. not in a good way. I just can’t get past it. I know it’s supposed to bring this whole ‘depth of flavour’ thingy, but with some tweaking you really don’t need the stuff!
The dressing I have created it so so yummy, it will not leave you looking for anything more! There is red wine vinegar and Worcestershire for that depth of flavour, lemon juice and zest for extra freshness, and dijon for a little kick. Freshly grated parmesan is essential and garlic brings it home. I use sour cream instead of greek yogurt or mayonnaise because it’s extra creamy deliciousness fits so well in this homemade caesar salad dressing.

What goes with caesar salad
Tonight I made this homemade caesar salad dressing to drench over a delicious Kale Caesar Salad and accompany some leftover Greek Chicken Kebabs I squirrelled away from last night’s dinner. No idea how I managed that one! The toasted almonds and dried cranberries from the Kale Caesar add the perfect touch to this Rich Creamy Madness!
Caesar salad is great with anything, really. Some of my favourites are:
- Spinach, Feta and Chicken Cannelloni with Rosé Sauce
- Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken Thighs with Pesto
- Low Carb Greek Turkey Burger
- Low Carb Chicken Parmesan with Zoodles
Pizza Crust Dip
One of my favourite ways to use up leftover homemade caesar salad dressing is pizza crust dip! It’s tangy flavours pair wonderfully with this Pepperoni Stuffed Pizza Crust or low carb Fathead Pizza Crust.
