Caesar Dressing and Dip

Prep Time: 15m | Total Time: 15m | Serves

This flavorful, creamy (and egg-free) version of the classic Caesar dressing works beautifully as a dressing for all kinds of bold, hearty greens and as a dip for veggies, too. For a yummy entrée-style salad variation, add a bit of chicken, shrimp, salami or bacon (or a combo).


1 teaspoon finely minced garlic (about 2 medium cloves)
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon anchovy paste
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco Sauce (or your favorite prepared hot sauce)
1/4 cup lemon juice (or up to 1/2 cup total, to taste)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper


Whisk all ingredients together in a large salad bowl. Start with 1/4 cup of lemon juice, then adjust to your taste. 

Toss with crisp romaine lettuce, crunchy garlic croutons and additional Parmesan cheese, if you like, for a conveniently classic-style Caesar salad.

If you're not making your salad right away, refrigerate the dressing, covered, until ready to use.
