This Easy Homemade Caesar Dressing is easy to make, ready in just 5 minutes and let me tell you, it tastes so much better than store bought Caesar dressing!
My son Aiden loves Caesar salad. Any time he gets the chance to order one he does, he will even take it over fries or garlic mashed potatoes. So happy now the most kids menus let you substitute fries for salad and Aiden is happy as well.
While I like Caesar salad, I struggle with sometimes to overwhelming power of the anchovy. So when I found a recipe that didn’t have it, well I was all over it. I modified a few things, like using garlic oil! Oh holy yumminess. It adds to that classic garlic zing that I just love about Caesar dressing.
Our new favorite way to eat this dressing is with kale. With the goal of eating more greens and less carbs and red meat, this dressing will be on the menu plan for multiple weeks this summer and to come.
Take the 5 minutes to make this dressing you won’t be disappointed. Caesar and non-Caesar fans will be happy you did as everyone just loves it here in our home. That’s right thumbs up from all 7 of us. Wait, make that 6. Jojo did eat it, but I think there were tears.
Enjoy! XOXO San

My favorite kitchen tools used to make this Easy Homemade Caesar Dressing:
BLENDTEC: I love using my Blendtec blender to make this and would highly recommend that you use one too – make the process so easy! However, you can use whatever blender that you have.
MASON JARS: I use large mason jars to store so much in from salsas, dressings and hot fudge sauce to crafts, markers and pens. These are great to have on hand for many kitchen uses.
