Light Egg-Free Caesar Dressing
Find out how to make a really light Caesar salad dressing. This one is egg-free and has very little oil. It’s made with Greek yogurt instead. This post is sponsored by Stonyfield.
A little while ago my sister site, TheCookful, did a whole series on salad dressing. We had tons of recipes for classic dressings and new ideas as well as how-to’s and tips for making the best dressings ever.
One of my favorite recipes from the series is for an egg-free Caesar salad dressing. It uses Stonyfield Greek yogurt instead of eggs but has the same thick and rich flavor as the original dressing. I started making that dressing recipe a lot for us here at home. Then I realized that it actually has quite a bit of oil in it for something that we were eating daily. (Yes, really. We were eating a lot of it!) I therefore decided to riff on that recipe and make it lighter.
You’ll find the light egg-free Caesar dressing recipe below. You’ll see that it still has a bit of oil, but not much. And yet it is thick and creamy and delicious.
A word of warning, don’t skip the anchovy paste. Without all the oil, you need that meaty flavor to come from somewhere and that’s what does it. Keep it in there for sure, for sure! Enjoy!
Light Egg-Free Caesar Salad Dressing
I don't typically put Parmesan cheese in my Caesar salad dressing, preferring to add it directly to the salad. It then has a stronger flavor and keeps its texture. Get more delicious salad dressing recipes here.
