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.

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a mason jar or bowl and mix until well incorporated.
  2. Store and use when needed.

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

If you want you dressing on the thinner side then you can add more oil or even more milk.

How long does Caesar salad dressing keep?

Can I freeze the dressing?

The dressing will not freeze well. We don’t recommend it.
