Caesar dressing (without eggs or anchovies)
Get the recipe for this delicious homemade vegetarian caesar dressing without raw egg, that can be prepared in advance to serve as a sauce or topping.
This Recipe includes
|Greek yogurt – regular or low fat greek yogurt.|
|Garlic powder or flakes|
|Dijon mustard – for that smooth and salty flavor|
|Olive oil – I prefer virgin olive oil, but you can use any type that you have.|
|Parmesan cheese – for that slightly nutty taste|
|Lemon juice – freshly squeezed lemon juice for flavor|
|(Optional) Worcestershire sauce – for that slightly sour and sweet taste. Note, most worcestershire sauces have anchovies in it, but there are vegetarian versions if you don’t like that fishy taste.|
Why we love it
Caesar salad is a timeless classic that somehow seems to go with everything. But the store-bought version can be loaded in fat and filled with additives. If you are looking for all the taste, but a healthier version, this creamy eggless caesar dressing is bound to hit all the right spots.
While traditional recipes tend to include raw eggs and anchovies, this recipe uses greek yogurt and lemon to give plenty of flavor and punch.
Many recipes use mayonnaise, but since homemade mayonnaise as usually includes raw egg, I’m using greek yogurt instead. I like to prepare my caesar dressing in advance and keep it in the fridge, which is not always a wise choice when it comes to raw eggs.
The greek yogurt also gives a slightly tangier taste while feeling lighter and healthier. As for the Worcestershire sauce, I confess I don’t always have that around when I’m making this recipe, but it still tastes just as good!
What to serve it with?
This delicious caesar dressing can be used to top salads such as this spinach caesar salad, or as a flavoring sauce such as in this chicken caesar wrap.
You can also use it as a marinade for meats, as a dip for crudités vegetables or in a burger. It’s an excellent way to serve up over roast chicken or steak with a bit of caesar dressing.
How to store it?
You can definitely prepare this vegetarian caesar dressing in advance, and keep it in the fridge for a few days or so. I wouldn’t recommend freezing it however, as it can turn watery.
Keep it in an airtight glass container in the fridge for maximum freshness.
