Making Caesar Salad Dressing from scratch – Thermomix

Published , Last Updated

This Caesar Salad Dressing is so full of flavour it will have you wondering why you ever settled for a commercially prepared dressing in the past.

Making Caesar salad dressing from scratch is really quite simple with the Thermomix. If you have a great recipe it will be a cinch… luckily I’ve got you covered in that department.

My dressing uses all the regular ingredients you would expect to find in a dressing, oil, egg, garlic and lemon. In addition, I’ve included anchovy, which is traditionally used in the dressing plus some mustard and pepper.

Please don’t leave out the anchovy! Anchovies give the dressing saltiness and its umami characteristics. I promise, there is no “fishiness” to the dressing. If you are concerned simply reduce the number of anchovies used in the dressing.

Serving Suggestions

Obviously, the dressing is perfect for Caesar Salad but it can also be used as a dressing on any salad. It is even delicious served with fish and chips as a substitute for a tartare sauce!

    Recipe Sounds perfect, A question are the eggs boiled or raw. All recipes I’ve noticed are hard boiled.


    1. Hi Jesse, the eggs in mayonnaise dressing are raw and become emulsified in the dressing. The eggs in the Caesar Salad are hard boiled. I hope that clarifies things for you. Happy Cooking J

    Thank you for the recipe…. delicious! I made it last Saturday.., how long will it keep?

    1. I’m so pleased you like the recipe. We usually find that as long as only clean knives are used in the dressing it will last about two weeks in the fridge.

    This is lovely but a bit too salty. I would add half the amount of anchovies next time

    1. Hi Naomi
      Thanks for coming back and letting me know your thoughts. I have to admit, we really like anchovies but I do know it’s a personal preference. Happy Cooking

  5. Philip says:

    Hi, I loved the dressing. However could it be you should also put some parmesan in the sauce?

      Yes, you could add 30-40g of parmesan to the dressing.
