Watch how to make Caesar salad dressing:


The key to the perfect classic caesar salad is a good dressing, and this one is the BEST! With a few basic ingredients you can have this dressing ready to go on your salad!

Pair the dressing with some homemade croutons and romaine, and you’ve got yourself a salad you’ll serve over and over.

Most of the ingredients needed for a classic caesar dressing you most likely already have on hand. The salad can be prepared in less than 5-minutes.

  • MAYO: Adds richness to the dressing.
  • MILK: Not a classic ingredient, but we like how it lightens the dressing.
  • LEMON: Gives the dressing its tanginess.
  • WORCESTERSHIRE: The secret ingredients for so much flavor.
  • DIJON: Removes that mayo taste and adds flavor.
  • SEASONING: So the salad isn’t bland.
  • GARLIC: We recommend fresh garlic.
  • OIL: Along with the mayo, gives it the creaminess.
  • PARMESAN CHEESE: Adds the cheesy flavor.

That’s all there is to making homemade dressing! We love to store our homemade dressing in THIS dressing bottle.
