"While there are many great Caesar Salad recipes out there I have yet to find one I haven't enjoyed - but when family gathers they expect to find their Caesar salad topped with our family favourite. So for my family and anyone who loves salads as much as we do - Cathy's Caesar Dressing. Be sure to use good quality croutons - better yet homemade! For the anchovy lovers you may add a teaspoon of anchovy paste."

Step 1

In a bowl (a 4 cup measuring cup works well) whisk together the oil, mayo, and garlic

Step 2

Add in vinegar,salt,pepper,sugar,and Worcestershire sauce

Step 3

Whisk in Parmesan Cheese (I like to add half to the dressing and add the other half to the salad )

Step 4

I find making the dressing well ahead allows it to mellow.I often double the recipe as it keeps well in the fridge for days and days

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This is a very good dressing! I cut the vinegar back to one tablespoon, I seemed to have developed a sensitivity since quitting smoking! Finally a perfect dressing. Thanks

Our family has found our new favorite Caesar salad dressing. So simple yet with a great burst of garlic flavor. I did put half of the parmesan cheese on the salad and half in the dressing . Just plain GREAT!!! Thanks for sharing Gerry!

This is a great salad dressing. I love trying new ones and I will make this from time to time in my homemade dressing rotation. I especially loved the Worcestershire and Parmesan together. Thank you for posting this for us to try Gerry! Linda

This is lovely garlicy dressing! I did not use it on a salad, but drizzled it over steamed asparagus. I did not tell DH what kind of sauce, and he loved it on the hot asparagus! Tonight I will be putting it on a salad. Thank you Gerry for sharing another wonderful recipe! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag. Update 8/1/15...I have made your dressing many many times since first reviewed. And just wanted to let you know that I had cold smoked some Grana Padano and used it in the dressing. It lent a wonderful smokiness.
