Extra creamy and bursting with flavor, this Homemade Caesar Dressing recipe tastes so much better than store-bought versions, and it is a lot healthier for you, too. This recipe combines homemade mayo with Worcestershire, Dijon, fresh lemon juice, savory garlic, and lots of umami flavor from the anchovies and parmesan cheese to make the perfect caesar salad.

How to make Homemade Caesar Salad Dressing
Making the best caesar dressing from scratch is really simple... especially if you are starting with mayonnaise as the base. (Try my Roasted Garlic Mayo)
Traditional table-side classic caesar in a restaurant would start with egg yolk being whisked with dijon and lemon juice until it is a thick paste, and then slowly whisking in the olive oil a little at a time.
But this version is so much easier because it starts with mayo, which is already an emulsion of egg and oil. Simply add all of your ingredients to a bowl and mix!

Frequently Asked Questions and Expert Tips
You can omit the anchovies if you're not a fan. The dressing will still be delicious, but it might not have the same traditional Caesar dressing flavor.
This can be stored for up to 2 weeks. However, I think it will be gone well before then.
To make dairy free caesar dressing, simply omit the parmesan cheese or substitute it for a little nutritional yeast.
