My husband and I are BIG caesar salad fans – and really, who isn’t?

A good caesar salad requires a fantastic dressing, and this version is what I make for us at home!

As a Registered Dietitian, I love to use Greek yogurt to make creamy salad dressings – like my popular Greek yogurt salad dressing and feta dill dressing.

Greek yogurt-based salad dressings are:

This caesar dressing has NO raw eggs and is super easy to make. Just throw all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth and creamy!

Ingredients

Everything you need to make this dressing:

  • Plain Greek yogurt: I recommend using full fat, or 5% milkfat, Greek yogurt for salad dressings. It’s richer and creamier!
  • Milk: Just a little milk thins out the dressing.
  • Olive oil: Olive oil helps thin out the dressing and from a nutritional standpoint, adds heart healthy fats.
  • Lemon: Fresh lemon juice is a staple caesar salad dressing ingredient.
  • Dijon mustard: Dijon mustard is tangy and a little spicy, and a classic ingredient in caesar dressing.
  • Parmesan Cheese: Freshly grated parmesan cheese is SO good in caesar dressing – it is salty, savory, and has a bit of a bite.
  • Garlic: Fresh garlic for that classic garlicky flavor.
  • Anchovies: Even if you don’t like anchovies on their own, I promise, they truly make this dressing taste authentically caesar. They bring a briny, salty, umami flavor that is hard to replicate.
  • Salt and pepper: to taste

This dressing is SO simple to make, like most of my homemade dressings and sauces. Just put all the ingredients in your food processor and blend until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste!

Serving suggestions

  • Make a big old caesar salad! Definitely make my sourdough croutons with it.
  • Make a caesar salad wrap or sandwich.
  • Drizzle the dressing over grain bowls or as a sandwich spread.
  • Dip for crunchy raw veggies .
