Caesar Salad Dressing Without Anchovies s quick, easy, creamy, and flavorful although it doesn’t have raw eggs, raw anchovies, or anchovy paste! This dressing takes only 5 minutes to make and is much better than store-bought salad dressing.

If you’ve never had homemade Caesar Dressing, you’ll in for a treat when you taste this. It’s creamy and tangy and is much better than any store-bought salad dressing I’ve ever tasted.

Traditional Caesar Salad Dressing contains raw eggs. The eggs combined with oil emulsify the other ingredients making the dressing creamy and smooth. (Emulsify simple means combining two ingredients that don’t usually bind together like oil and water. In food recipes, combining oil and vinegar is a good example.)

However, I used just olive oil in this recipe instead of raw eggs or another substitute. It serves the same purpose as raw eggs (to emulsify) but is safe for everyone and stores longer. This dressing keeps well in the refrigerator for up to one week stored in an airtight container. I like to store it in a glass canning jar.

Miso paste – Miso paste is a thick paste that is deeply savory, with toasty, salty-sweet richness. You can purchase Miso Paste here. If you don’t have miso paste and don’t want to buy any, you can substitute soy sauceSoy sauce will give you the salty flavor, but not the creamy texture that miso offers.

Whole-grain mustard – You can sub stone-ground mustard for whole-grain mustard. (But don’t use the yellow mustard.)

  1. I haven’t tried this yet. But I Love Caesar Salads. I was just wondering if you can add the anchovies if you like the flavor.
