Transcript:Caesar Salad Dressing

Hi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make your own Caesar salad dressing.

Caesar Salad Dressing Ingredients

  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese

Blend the Ingredients

In a mini food processor or blender, place the 2 teaspoons of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard, 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon of anchovy paste, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of fresh ground pepper, and 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese.

Cut a lemon, and squeeze half into the cup. Pulse the mixer a few times to combine these ingredients. Then, while mixing, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Serve the Caesar Salad Dressing

It is nice to put the dressing in the refrigerator for about an hour before serving. Serve with lettuce, extra Parmesan cheese, and croutons.

This dressing tastes great with chicken or shrimp and on sandwiches and salads.
