Ingrid's Caesar Salad Dressing

Recipe by  

"This Caesar salad dressing is always a hit! Prepare at least 4 hours in advance for best taste. No raw egg means you can make this dressing and keep it in the fridge for up to 5 days, and it only gets better with time! For extra presentation serve with croutons, cubes of avocado flesh, and grated Parmesan cheese. Leftover dressing makes good dip for fresh veggies as a snack (Just maybe not at work due to the awesome amount of garlic!)"

I did not add the prepared blue cheese dressing only because I don't normally have that kind of dressing on hand. I did up the fresh parmesan to 1/4 cup and I also used reduced fat mayonnaise. I made no other changes. This dressing was just enough to cover my Macaroni Caesar Salad without drowning it in dressing and the flavor was wonderful. Very, very good. I'll use this dressing again, only I will take the submitter's suggestions and make it ahead of time for the best flavor.

While this may be a tasty salad dressing, but I don't think ti should be called "Caesar".

I will never buy Caesar Dressing again! I used 2 tablespoons of actual blue cheese instead of blue cheese dressing. DELICIOUS!

Love this! I used crumbled blue cheese in place of the blue cheese dressing because that's what I had on hand. Update: Hubby didn't care for the blue cheese in this (though I loved it!) so now I leave that out. Also, I only use about 2 T olive oil as and omit the vinegar, but use a little more lemon juice. Just personal preference. Overall, this is a great recipe when looking for Caesar without anchovies. Worcestershire has anchovies in it so that gives it that "Caesar" dressing flavor without the fishy taste. Thanks!

I didn't have the ingredients for the other very popular recipe on the site, so this one was tried with only one review. So glad I did - it was very tasty. We did not have time to wait the 4 hours, but it was good just the same. Most likely the flavors would be even better if we had waited. Give it a try!

This is quite simply the best Caesar dressing I've ever made at home, and I've tried lots! For a no-fail, everyone loves it version, stick to the original recipe and it will never let you or your guests down. After using this recipe several times, I've begun experimenting with it. I've substituted the blue cheese salad dressing with ranch and creamy italian with stellar results, so don't be afraid to use what you have on hand. With a bit of experimentation, I've also discovered that you can cut down on the amount of olive oil, or omit it all together if you're trying to save fat/calories. Thank you Kirsten and Ingrid! This one I will keep always!
