There are a few salad dressings that absolutely make a salad. Take caesar salad for example. I remember during a trip into Atlanta when I was in elementary school, Mama took my sister and me to a restaurant for lunch. The restaurant’s house salad was a Caesar salad that they served as soon as you were seated at your table. 

As a bright eyed, sassy little thing, I looked up at the waitress and said, “May I please have ranch dressing with my salad?”

Have mercy.

The sweet waitress just looked at me with a smile and said, “Honey, if you try that salad as is and do not like it, I promise I’ll bring you whatever dressing you want.” Needless to say, I didn’t need to ask her for another dressing after all. Ha ha!

That made a very memorable moment in my Caesar salad and Caesar dressing evolution!

Now, I prefer to make my own Caesar dressing at home. It only takes a jiffy and I know every one of the handful of ingredients that I use for it.

Seriously, it has to be one of the fastest dressing recipes in my arsenal and one that I turn to time and time again. This recipe does not use raw eggs, making it last longer in the refrigerator and safe for those with egg sensitivities to still be able to enjoy!

I’ve also included the option to use Greek yogurt in place of mayonnaise in my recipe. I recommend that you use whichever mayonnaise or Greek yogurt you prefer to eat.

  1. So yum! Being garlic fiends, we doubled the number of cloves and we used lime juice (because, apparently I can’t read). Sooooooo delish.

  2. For the Greek yogurt could you use one with honey in it,(we love the flavour of that yogurt) my husband is not a fan of mayonnaise. Thanks

  3. This is the best Caesar dressing we have ever had,I went with 1/2 cup of each mayonnaise and plain Greek yogurt. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. We enjoyed it so much I’ll never use any other,makes up really fast.Thankyou 😍🥰😘🤪🤗👍🏻😃💋

  4. Made this twice and it is a hit! All the guests at our dinner party loved it. I finally found a recipe that has enough garlic and cheese flavor and it is so easy to make. Thank you! 

  5. Thank you for sharing the recipe! My kids loved Caesar dressing and buying a decent one was breaking the bank, so I wanted to make one myself. Once I mixed the mayonnaise with Greek yogurt until it reaches our family liking, my kids never asked for their branded Caesar dressing again 🙂

    1. Hi Esther’s Mommy!
      I’m so happy that this dressing was a hit with you and your kids!
      And now you can make it whenever you want – and you know what’s in it! I love making my own dressings for that reason (and because I think it’s more delicious and fresher tasting too)!
      Thank you so much for sharing your kind comment with me! I have several more homemade dressing recipes you may want to check out here on my site as well. I’m happy to have you here! xo

      1. Excellent and full of flavor!! If someone doesn’t like this— they don’t like Caesar dressing. Have made this before and did again this morning for a special dinner.

  6. I’ve made this Caesar dressing ten times now and we are hooked. I won’t look for another one and I’ll never buy it again. I usually use Nancy’s whole milk yogurt (because I always have it) and it turns out so good. My kids have all become salad eaters due to this dressing. Thank you!!

    1. Wow! That is amazing that your kids now eat salad with this dressing. We all love it our house, too. Thanks, Sara.
