Homemade Caesar Salad Dressing

Salad dressing with cream and herbs
We love a homemade salad dressing – it’s just so much more amazing than store-bought! This Caesar dressing is thick, creamy and delicious with many ingredients we already have in our kitchen. We decided to skip the anchovies here, which is usually found in the traditional recipe, but they do add a little extra flavor. We lightened everything up by using Greek yogurt and add a little zing with crushed red pepper flakes. The creamy goodness of the dressing doesn’t stop there; we make an entire meal when we add it to romaine lettuce, chicken, fresh Parmesan cheese, savory croutons and a side of our favorite crusty bread. We’re thinking about expanding our homemade dressing options because we love this Caesar variety so much!
