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!

Parmesan cheese to add to salad at end
- Combine all ingredients in cup for hand blender or small food processor.
