Making Caesar Salad Dressing from scratch – Thermomix
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.
Caesar Salad Dressing Watchpoints
- All ingredients should be at room temperature before commencing the recipe.
- 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
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!
