For those of us who are constantly disappointed in store-bought Caesar Salad Dressings, this one’s for you!

Seriously though. Time and time again I try new Caesar Dressings from different grocery stores. Yes, I buy dressings sometimes to make my life easier. But time and time again, I am frustrated because they’re never as good as I want them to be. Here’s my recipe for an Easy Caesar Dressing so that you’ll never be disappointed again.

I use all the classic Caesar ingredients: mayo, garlic, anchovies, Dijon, lemon, Worcestershire. But I also add in white wine vinegar and a small pinch of sugar. I think both of those ingredients help round out the flavor.

I love using this with a classic Caesar Salad, obviously. But it’s also a great condiment for any protein. I also use it in a Caesar Salad twist, in my recipe for Fennel Caesar Salad with Pears and Toasted Pecans. It’s really good, you should try it!

Recipe Tips:

Slowly emulsify. Make sure not to pour in either of the oils too quickly, or else you’ll risk the dressing separating.

Ingredient Notes:

  • Mayonnaise – I like to use classic Hellman’s, the full fat kind. I find it emulsifies better than organic or olive oil-based mayos.
  • Anchovies – I use anchovies packed in oil!
  • Sugar – This isn’t necessary if you’re very against using sugar, but I do think it makes the dressing THAT much better. Also, it’s 1/4 teaspoon of sugar for 2 cups of dressing. You’ll be okay.
  • Avocado Oil – I like using avocado oil because it’s healthier than some other neutral oils. But, you can use vegetable, corn, or canola oil here instead, if you’d like.
