Caesar Dressing (vegetarian)

Posted on: August 17, 2011

Okay so if most of your family doesn’t like seafood you can’t make traditional caesar dressing with anchovies.

We’ve found a delicious substitute which makes us want to have extra helpings of salad!

Caesar Dressing

  • 1 tsp. freshly grated lemon zest (I zest the entire lemon with my Microplane and add it all)
  • 3 TBSP. fresh lemon juice (Always use a real lemon – never bottled!)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (always use fresh garlic – never from a jar.  I press two large cloves with my Garlic Press.)
  • 1 tsp. white wine vinegar
  • 2/3 c. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt (I use Real Salt from Utah.)

This recipe is from The New Basics Cookbook by Julee Rosso & Sheila Lukins © 1989 (Authors of The Silver Palate Cookbook & several more.)

Serve over romaine lettuce, with Kraft Shredded Parmesan cheese and croutons.   If you have a Cheese Grater, then definitely use a hunk of authentic Parmigiano-Reggiano or asiago.

Eat with crusty bread and red wine.
