What to do, what to do?
…you’re ready to make a Caesar salad and you realize you forgot to buy Caesar dressing – ugh! (or in my case, you leave the refrigerated type in the back of the hot car all day!) 😆
Usually I make homemade salad dressings or just use oil and vinegar, but for some reason I have always bought Caesar dressing – I think the raw eggs scared me. Turns out a little mayonnaise solves that problem as it contains pasteurized eggs.
Disclaimer: I realize this recipe is not 100% “traditional” Caesar dressing – (see quotation marks in recipe title) However, it’s super delicious and better than anything you can buy in a bottle. I loved the creamy, lemony and Parmesan flavor so much, I was using it as a dressing, spread and dip all week long!
I used my KitchenAid 3.5 cup Chopper to make this dressing, but you could make it in any chopper, food processor or blender. I love how you can grind a few chunks of fresh Parmesan right in your chopper instead of using pre-ground – really makes a big taste difference!
