Creamy Caesar Salad Dressing




I love Caesar Salad. It was my favourite salad as a child. I think that’s pretty common, with all the crunchy croutons and parmesan cheese goodness, kids don’t even know they are eating lettuce! This salad can easily turn into one of the most unhealthy salads ever, once you start adding in all of the extras. Here, I kept things really simple; Romaine lettuce, mushrooms and toasted Raw Sunflower Seeds to give it a little crunch. Chicken or shrimp would be a wonderful addition.

This recipe contains raw eggs, which are not recommended for children or pregnant women. Heck, some people suggest it is not recommended for anyone; you can use your own judgment. Be sure you use top quality fresh eggs.

  1. Mmmm… I love a good Caesar salad! I haven’t had one in so long, I’m definitely going to try this! I think raw egg yolks are a superfood, as long as they are from local, pastured and happy chickens.

  2. It’s so true…this salad can easily turn really unhealthy–croutons, dairy, etc. Thanks for putting together an easy way to do it! I definitely get Caeser cravings that I have to satisfy–this will help!

  3. How are eggs bad for you? They have Omega-3’s and they give you non-stop energy all day…

    • Eggs aren’t bad for you, that is why I used them in this recipe. There are some instances where one should be careful with Raw eggs as stated in the post. HTH

  4. You can easily make a salad dressing egg-free by adding 1TB of chia seeds soaked in 3 TB of water for a few minutes. Works like a charm and it good for you too 😉

  5. How long will this salad dressing last in the fridge, should it be thrown out after two days or more like five days?

    • This raw egg recipe. I would say 2 days. There is an egg free paleo recipe also linked in this post using hemp hearts that would last longer.

  6. Has anyone tried freezing this dressing? My husband will only use caesar dressing on salads and making a small batch of this every 2 days seems time consuming when you have a family to cook for. He has had weight problems, so we want to give whole30 a try, but I know he won’t go through with it if he feels deprived.
