We’ve been told this is THE BEST CAESAR DRESSING ever and we couldn’t agree more!

If you’re new to Weekend at the Cottage, you’ll soon discover we’re big on salads. We also think every great salad shines when dressed up with a tasty homemade dressing. When it comes to Caesar salad, this really is THE BEST CAESAR DRESSING to use. Big bold flavours await and we know you’re going to love it!

We’ve created two COLLECTIONS to make your salad pursuit more enjoyable; one for SALADS the other for DRESSINGS.

Let’s get back to THE BEST CAESAR DRESSING; here’s how to make it.

Ingredients for the Best Caesar Dressing

CLASSIC 

We decided to prepare this famous dressing using the classic ingredients – why mess with a good thing, right? The one change we did make is using two different oils. Although some Caesar dressings are made solely with olive oil, we added vegetable oil into the mix. The result is a lighter dressing with a less pronounced oil flavour.

THE BLEND

Back in the day, this dressing was made by macerating the garlic, capers and anchovies in a bowl before whisking in the oils, lemon juice and seasoning. If you’re feeling that old-school vibe, go ahead and bring the dressing together by hand. If you’re more the get ‘er done ASAP kind of chef, simply use an immersion blender (link to purchase below).

Making this dressing using a blender is was easier, but make sure to add the Parmesan as directed – it’s best when pulsed in with the other ingredients right before the salad is dressed. This final step gives the dressing a wonderful creaminess.

THE FINISH

You’ll be tempted to use the dressing soon after making it, and that’s fine, it’s good to go. But we also know having a delicious dressing on hand in the fridge is always a good idea, and this one can be stored in a container and enjoyed as you wish. We suggest finishing it within a week, although it never lasts that long.

THE BEST CAESAR DRESSING is always a favourite!
