This is an unbelievable, restaurant-quality, creamy Caesar salad dressing that will make you swear off of anything store-bought again. Great for your classic Caesar salad, or as a dip for all kinds of veggies. Will NOT disappoint! To serve, toss with chopped romaine in a salad bowl and shave Parmesan cheese on top of salad; season with salt, black pepper, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

Ingredients

  • 2 anchovy fillets
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped, or to taste
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup half-and-half
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

Directions

  • Step 1 Combine anchovy fillets with garlic in a food processor and pulse several times to form a paste. Process mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, half-and-half, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and Worcestershire sauce with anchovy mixture until dressing is creamy. Refrigerate for 1 hour or more before serving.

Cook’s Note:

For a lowfat version, substitute light mayo and lowfat milk for regular mayo and half-and-half.
