This recipe will teach you how to make the best homemade Caesar Salad Dressing eva!
Who does not love Caesar salad? Really it is one of the most popular salads in the Whole World.
Often it is served with croutons as well, however when I am making it at home. I tend to omit them for a more keto type salad.
You can go ahead and add in some dried bread for your croutons if your wanting or try something pre made.
IS CAESAR SALAD DRESSING KETO FRIENDLY
Mine is because I omit the Worcestershire sauce and Croutons.
I do this by preference also, however if you want to add those ingredients I have provided the ratio of them below for you.
ARE CAESAR SALAD DRESSING VEGAN
No, however you can make yours vegan simply by adding vegan mayo instead of hellman’s mayo and cut out the anchovy paste. However it will definitely taste different, so I will leave that up to you.
WHAT’S CAESAR SALAD DRESSING MADE OF
My Caesar salad is made of Hellman’s Mayonnaise, fresh parmigiano reggiano cheese, dijon mustard, fresh lemon juice, anchovy paste, fresh garlic and is seasoned with salt and pepper.
Some people like to add Worcestershire sauce also. I choose not too! I suggest taking a tsp once it is made and adding a drop to that and tasting it to see whether you want to add some.
If you do, feel free to add anywhere from 1 tsp to 1 tbsp to the dressing.
Then you will want to add this dressing to the most crispy Romaine lettuce you can find !
And wulla you will have a classic caesar to enjoy in know time.
