Caesar Salad Dressing

Posted by

This dressing is simple to make and contains all the flavors of a traditional caesar dressing. However, this dressing has a balsamic base instead of mayonnaise or creamy base. This caesar dressing still has the anchovies, garlic and other common caesar dressing ingredients. So yummy and a great change up from creamy caesar dressing. And most importantly, don’t forget the parmesan cheese!!

1 batch makes enough for 2 heads of lettuce! Or feel free to store dressing in the fridge for up to a week!


1/2 C olive oil

1/4 C balsamic

1 T lemon juice

12 anchovies (allow the fish oil from the filets to drip into the dressing mixture)

3 medium whole garlic cloves

1 tsp dry mustard (optional)

1 T water (more if consistency is too thick)

pepper to taste

Parmesan cheese to add to salad at end


  1. Combine all ingredients in cup for hand blender or small food processor.
  2. Blend until combined. If too thick, add a splash of water.
  3. Sprinkle cheese and dressing over romaine lettuce. Add croutons if desired. Toss and serve!
