Avocado Caesar Salad Dressing (Dairy Free + Egg Free)

Avocado Caesar Salad Dressing (Dairy Free + Egg Free)

Love caesar salad dressing but not always crazy about eating raw egg?  

I feel you.

I love a classic caesar, but for everyday, I actually prefer this avocado based dressing.  It’s bright, creamy, tart, and delicious.  Best of all it comes together in minutes and will keep for up to a week in the fridge.  

It’s become a staple in my kitchen for a reason.


“what else can I use?”

  • Both anchovies and anchovy paste can be used in this dressing.  If you’re using paste, about a teaspoon should be great.
  • If you don’t want to use anchovy, the flavor will change, but it’ll still be a delicious dressing.  Use a bit more salt and lemon to taste.
  • Sometimes I throw about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of fresh parmesan in the dressing when I fancy it.  

You’ll grow to love this healthy, creamy avocado caesar salad dressing as much as the original, if not more.  I love it on everything from salads to chicken burrito bowls and a dip for fresh veggies.  Enjoy!
