Best Caesar Salad Dressing

Guest post this week! I absolutely advocate fresh, homemade recipes like this. It’s always best to choose homemade over storebought; you know exactly where your ingredients come from and what you’re eating. This has my imagination wheels turning to substitute the parmesan cheese and eggs with vegan alternatives; it is most definitely possible and I want to so bad.

Although they are usually known for providing coffee grinder reviews and in depth articles about coffee, the folks at Know Your Grinder have a few other tricks up their sleeve. Namely, this awesome recipe for Caesar Salad Dressing, which is a family favorite for many years. I hope enjoy the exclusive recipe they’ve shared with us! There’s even a how-to video posted for extra instruction.

Best Caesar Salad Dressing

Note:  this recipe includes “super” foods such as olive oil, vinegar, lemon, mustard, dark romaine lettuce

1.  Mix in blender

  • 5 cloves of organic fresh garlic (more or less is up to you)
  • 2 large organic eggs from free range chickens at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup of age quality parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • juice from 1/2 fresh lemon
  • 1 T. of dijon mustard
  • 4 or 5 shakes of worchestershire sauce
  • a couple of sprinkles of hot sauce
  • 6 T. red wine vinegar

2.  Drizzle in Slowly

  • 2 cups of the best first cold pressed olive oil you can find (this one is good, or you can shop at a specialty olive oil store)
  • The blender mixture will slowly thicken until the last few drops of oil appear not to want to blend anymore. That’s when you stop.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 1 week.

3.  Lettuce

  • Choose quality fresh organic romaine lettuce.
  • Wash and spin dry.
  • Cool in fridge until ready to serve.
  • Small pieces make the dressing cover better and is easier to eat.

4.  Serve

  • Place lettuce in a pretty big wooden salad bowl.
  • Add croutons and any other topppings.
  • Pour over dressing just enough to lightly cover lettuce.
  • Grate more parmesan cheese over salad.
  • Toss well and serve immediately.

5.  Other: Use as a topping on most foods.
