You just can’t beat a homemade salad dressing. Sure, bottled dressings are convenient (we definitely still use them), but the fresh flavour from a homemade dressing is truly unbeatable. So if you’ve got 5-10 minutes to spare, you won’t regret making this healthy caesar dressing recipe!

Originally, I created this creamy, greek yogurt-based Caesar salad dressing when developing my Homemade Healthy Caesar Salad recipe. Since then, I’ve discovered that not only does this recipe taste amazing on Caesar salad, it’s also great:

  • as a dip for vegetables
  • as a spread on sandwiches and wraps
  • on other salads like garden, Cobb, or pasta salad

Ingredients for this Healthy Caesar Dressing recipe:

To make this dressing recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 anchovy filets, diced (or 2 tsp anchovy paste)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper (can adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

How to Make Homemade Caesar Salad Dressing:

As I mentioned, you can make this recipe one of two ways; In a blender or food processor, or by whisking everything together by hand. Either way, the dressing will be delicious. Below, I’ve outline how to make the dressing both ways:

Healthy Caesar Dressing in the Blender:

First, we’ll add all of the dressing ingredients except for the parmesan cheese to a blender or food processor. Next, we’ll blend or process the ingredients until the mixture is smooth, creamy and white in colour.

Once this is achieved, we stir in the parmesan cheese! After this, give the dressing a taste and adjust salt and pepper as necessary.

Healthy Caesar Dressing by Hand:

Alternatively, if you’re making this recipe by hand, you’ll need a medium-sized mixing bowl and a whisk. First, add all of the ingredients except for the parmesan cheese to the bowl and stir until well combined, creamy and white in colour.

Then, we stir in the parmesan cheese! After this, we can taste the dressing and adjust the ingredients as necessary.
