How to Make Caesar Salad Dressing:
The caesar salad dressing comes together so fast and all you need is a bowl and whisk. This Caesar dressing is light, healthy and packs so much fresh flavor without needing much salt at all.


Whisk together minced garlic, dijon, Worcestershire, lemon juice and red wine vinegar.
Whisking while adding oil emulsifies the dressing for a smooth and creamy (not oily) consistency.
Season with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste.
