Easy Caesar Dressing

Why go store bought when you can make your own! This caesar dressing takes no time to make and lasts about a week in the fridge.

(Makes 1 cup, or 8 servings)


  • 2 anchovy fillets finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3/4 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup plus 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • Shaved parmesan (optional)


  1. Mound together the anchovy, garlic, and salt using the side of a knife on a cutting board until a paste-like substance forms.
  2. Whisk egg yolk, lemon juice, and mustard in a medium sized bowl.
  3. Slowly add in oil as you continue to whisk. Add in enough oil so that the substance looks like mayonnaise.
  4. Add water if needed to thin.
  5. Add anchovy mixture and whisk.
  6. If using parmesan, add parmesan now (2-4 tbsp) and whisk to combine.
  7. Taste and add salt and pepper, if desired.
