Caesar Salad Dressing

This dressing has been a huge favorite of ours and is used quite frequently! In fact I made it for our Easter dinner and then again for dinner with friends this last week! It always gets rave reviews and the best part is, it’s simple and healthy!

This dressing isn’t a true Caesar dressing since I don’t add the anchovy fillets. It would certainly add more flavor and nutrients if some were added. Probably two is all that is needed to do the job!

I often use this dressing for a typical caesar salad with chicken and fresh parmesan cheese, but I also will frequently use it for other salads as well. I think it is especially tasty on spring greens with grapes, almond slivers and fresh goat cheese! ALL the kids love it and will often have three and four servings!

Ingredients
⅓ cup fresh parmesan cheese
¼ cup homemade mayonaise
1 ½ TBSP balsamic vinegar
1 ½ TBSP fresh lemon or lime juice
1 ½ tsp homemade mustard
½ tsp worcestershire sauce
¼ cup olive oil (or any oil of choice)
1 clove garlic(optional)
2 anchovies(optional)

Instructions
Mix all ingredients in food processor or blender and mix until well blended. If I’m not adding the fresh garlic or anchovies I will often just put all the ingredients in a jar and give it a few good shakes and serve!
