Homemade Caesar Dressing – creamy, garlicky, with Parmesan cheese in every bite. This dressing is SO EASY to make and only takes 10 minutes!

Walk down the salad dressing aisle at your local supermarket and you’ll see a variety of different options. They look so colorful and pretty, especially in those beautiful designer glass jars.

I’ve always found it difficult to find a store bought salad dressing that I really love, so I started making my own.

Spicy Ranch Dressing was one of the first, followed by this Homemade Caesar dressing. It’s creamy, lemony, garlicky, and mimics an authentic Caesar dressing.

In fact, we love it so much that even use it on our chicken Caesar wraps.

It’s so easy to make, and is done in less than 10 minutes. There are no eggs, mixing it is super simple!

Give it a try on your next chicken Caesar salad! I think you’ll love it.

How to make Homemade Caesar Dressing:

Using a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, anchovy paste, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, Dijon mustard, Parmesan cheese, and Worcestershire sauce. Whisk until smooth and creamy.

Place the dressing in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or serve immediately.

The dressing will thicken as it cools.

Recipe Tips:

  • Use either shredded or grated Parmesan cheese. Shredded works better. Grated makes a thicker dressing.
  • Use a garlic press or chopper for mincing/pressing the garlic.
  • Go light on the salt. The cheese and anchovy paste add additional saltiness, so it’s easy to overdo it.
  • Use a hand blender to mix the dressing. It works great!
  • Not a fan of Caesar dressing, then try our new creamy garlic dressing.
