Caesar Dressing

Cuisinart original

Traditonal Caesar Dressing is made with a "coddled egg", and may not be considered food safe. Here we substitute cooked egg yolks to get that creamy consistency. The remaining cooked egg white may be finely chopped to add to your salad.


Makes 14 tablespoons


2 egg yolks 3 tablespoons cider or wine vinegar 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese ½ tablespoon Dijon-style mustard ½ teaspoon anchovy paste or mashed anchovy ¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce Dash Tabasco® or other hot sauce ¼ teaspoon kosher salt ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground pepper ¾ cup good quality olive oil
