Homemade Creamy Caesar Dressing beats any store bought salad dressing! This salad dressing recipe has completely turned me into a salad lover!
How To Make Homemade Salad Dressing
So, we’re not opposed to buying products from the store, obviously.
We buy tons of store bought everything. I mean, this is modern times people, I don’t have time to whip up everything we eat from scratch.
But salad dressing is just one of those things that we do always make homemade. Our standard salad dressing that the boys eat almost every night isn’t even mixed together, they just add olive oil, balsamic vinegar and a few seasonings to their salad and toss it together in their bowls.
The only standard store bought dressing we buy is a bottle of Ranch that we keep in the refrigerator for dipping. Because homemade salad dressing just tastes SO much better than anything from a bottle.
Trust me on this one.

So don’t go grabbing that can of parmesan cheese for this recipe, get the good stuff in your produce department or better yet grab a block of good parmesan cheese in the cheese section and grate it yourself.
Also for a Caesar salad, I do like the dressing tossed together with the lettuce instead of being added to the top of your salad. This dressing recipe is just one of those things that tastes better when you toss it all together before serving.
Then add some fresh black pepper, croutons if you like, and more shaved or grated parmesan cheese on top. Chicken, shrimp or steak will turn this salad into a meal!
