Caesar Salad Dressing

9 04 2021


  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp anchovy paste (or more to taste)
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed or minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 olive oil
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil, grapeseed or avocado oil
  • 2 tbsp grated parmigiano reggiano

In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, lemon juice, anchovy paste, dijon mustard, garlic, salt and pepper until smooth.

While whisking continuously, add in the oil in a thin steady stream. You want to add it slowly so that it emulsifies. Take your time and remember to whisk continuously. You can adjust the flavors at this point. You may want to add more lemon juice or anchovy paste or mustard depending on your preferences.

The dressing should have a thick texture. Stir in the cheese.
