An Easy Caesar Dressing Recipe; Almost, But Not Quite From Scratch

caesar salad!

Luckily, I don’t need to make my caesar dressing from scratch very often. The reason is a local Seattle company, Royal Pantry Foods(Northwest Gourmet Foods), produces a fabulous fresh caesar dressing they call “Royal Caesar dressing” that I can buy  in the refrigerated section at my local grocery store. This dressing is to die for. However, when I run out of it and don’t have time to go to the store, this is the caesar dressing recipe I use. It’s based on a Nordstrom Friends and Family Cookbook recipe that I doctored just an eensy bit; it’s extremely easy and I don’t have to worry about poisoning my children with salmonella- which is a good thing.

  • 4 T. extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 T. worcestershire sauce

  1. Whisk together all of the above ingredients until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
