Looking for a light Caesar dressing? Instead of buying a store bought dressing full of trans-fats and unknown ingredients, make your own Paleo Caesar Dressing! It only takes a few minutes to make.
My favorite kinds of Caesar dressings are the light and flavorful ones. Many cream-based dressings are extremely fattening and usually not the best flavor. My favorite restaurant from my hometown has an amazing Caesar salad. After getting it to-go so many times, I decided to create my own, which is much cheaper.
This dressing is incredibly easy to make. Most homemade dressings are no hassle to make, and you will save money. Unlike most Caesar dressings, this dressing is not thick or creamy. It drizzles on nicely, and you can use it with almost any salad.
For this salad, I like to use romaine lettuce and top it with bacon and goat cheese. If you are avoiding all dairy, omit the goat cheese. If you are lactose intolerant, and you didn’t know this already, goat milk does not contain lactose. This dressing is completely dairy-free but does contain a raw egg, which makes the shelf life shorter.
After making this dressing, I’ll eat Caesar salad every night until it’s gone. It is simply that good. If you haven’t made homemade dressing, try it out! You won’t ever buy processed dressing again.
