John G's Caesar Salad Dressing

Rated as 4.55 out of 5 Stars
1

"This is my own variant of the classic Caesar salad dressing, but without using raw egg so that the dressing keeps longer and doesn't spoil so easily. It's also a bit more piquant than the classic version and uses more cheese (because more cheese is always good). To make it more decorative in the bottle, try adding large sprigs of fresh basil to the dressing after shaking it. Makes a nice gift, and fresh basil tastes better, too."

I like it 'cos I made it.

My kidlets and I love salad but they stayed clear of their portion. This dressing is the bare bones of Caesar dressing - minus the egg. I did add a coddled egg yolk in the remaining dressing aft...

this was ok just a bit oily for us.

This is a great recipe. Exactly as written, do it that way. Then for another salad push on of the core spices forward for a slightly different take. This recipe is very versatile that way.

All I can say for this is WOW!

Great recipe! I made it gluten-free friendly by omitting the bread crumbs. I also added anchovies to give it more of the authentic caesar flair. Have tried for weeks to find a store-bought dress...

This is my go-to Caesar salad dressing, although I don't use anywhere close tot the recommended amount of olive oil suggested! I totally agree with the other comment that you wouldn't think that...

Really flavorful but too oily. I added in celery salt and a bit more lemon juice. I also used Caesar croutons for the bread crumbs and ran everything through the blender. Next time I will...
