Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Two delicious dressings combine to make one powerful flavor. This is a great alternative in place of caesar dressings that contain raw eggs. This dressing has a fresh flavor provided by the vinegar and lemon zest. Plus it’s still got the deep richness of a traditional caesar dressing.

The dressing is super easy to make. In fact; everything is broken down in just one step. It takes roughly 5 minutes to make the dressing. The ingredients include two types of vinegar, lemon zest, white sugar, Italian seasoning, olive oil, garlic, anchovy paste, salt, and pepper. Plus, what would a Caesar salad be without parmesan? This ingredient is added at the end right before serving.

Mix all the ingredients together leaving out the olive oil, parmesan and garlic. Once everything is combined, gradually add the olive oil, lightly whisking it into the mix. Then you can add the garlic to your homemade dressing. When everything is ready add some parmesan to the salad and serve.

If you like caesar and vinaigrette then you have to try this dressing. It’s a great combination of the two dressings. It’s hard to compare a homemade dressing to store bought ones. This dressing is fresh in flavor and timing. You can impress guests or family with your chef style. Present a healthy, homemade meal that you can be proud of without the addition of raw eggs. 

 

If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional caesar dressing, this recipe just might do the trick. Unlike its counterpart, this dressing has no raw eggs. While the vinegar gives it a nice, fresh flavor, you still get the deep, richness that traditional caesar dressing provides.
