Caesar Dressing is a must-have for your homemade dressing repertoire. It’s easy to make, and when you peep the ingredients of a popular jarred version, you’ll see why it’s worth making it at home.
Classic Caesar Dressing is a must for your homemade dressing arsenal.
Why bother making it homemade?
Here are the ingredients of one of the more popular store-bought Caesar Dressings: soybean oil, vinegar, water, cider vinegar, romano cheese, salt, sugar, anchovies, dried garlic, spice, garlic powder, mustard flour, potassium sorbate, and sodium benzoate, calcium disodium EDTA, beta carotene
It’s not the worst list of ingredients I’ve ever seen, but I tend to pass on anything with soybean oil as the first ingredient.
And here are the ingredients in my Caesar Dressing: avocado oil, extra virgin olive oil, egg yolk, lemon juice, champagne vinegar, parmesan cheese (optional) anchovies, dijon mustard, garlic, salt

This recipe, and just about all of my dressing recipes, are best made with an immersion blender. If you don’t have one yet, I highly recommend shelling out $30 for one, I use mine all the time.Print

- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon finely ground sea salt or pink salt
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/2 cup avocado oil
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

- In a wide mouthed jar, blend the anchovies, garlic, lemon juice, champagne vinegar, dijon mustard, salt, and egg yolk with an immersion blender for about 30 seconds until emulsified.
