Caesar Salad Dressing from scratch – Thermomix

Published , Last Updated

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 Thermomix. If you have a great recipe it will be a cinch… luckily I’ve got you covered in that department, I have THE BEST recipe!

Ingredients Caesar Salad Dressing

My dressing uses all the regular ingredients you would expect to find in a dressing.

  • oil
  • egg
  • garlic
  • lemon

…but in addition, the dressing has anchovy. Anchovy is traditionally used in all caesar salad dressings. My dressing also includes;

  • mustard powder
  • black peppercorns

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.

  • Don’t use a strong-tasting oil ie: strong olive oil
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes prior to serving
  • Add the oil slowly whilst the TM is operating

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!

    Love this easy Caesar dressing – we add Parmesan in our dressing and anchovies to taste. My 9 yr old loooooves this so much we convert any leftovers into a wrap for her school lunch 😂

  3. Megan says:

    I loved this, I love anchovies so used half a jar! Was amazing.

  4. Philip says:

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

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

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

  5. Noelene says:

    Julie, I can only find anchovies in a jar. How much do I use please

  6. Naomi says:

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

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      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

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

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      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.

  8. jessie says:

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


    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      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
