TODAY IS…

AugustBreak7

…for chicken Caesar salad with my Mom’s dressing recipe. Its one of the things I’m really good at whipping up in the kitchen and one of my favorite things to eat. And my Mom said I could share the recipe today.

If you love really creamy, heavy on the garlic dressing, this recipe is for you!

Ingredients:

4 garlic cloves, peeled
1 cup oil (I prefer vegetable oil)
2 fake eggs (the generic ‘Egg Beaters’ work great)
salt & pepper
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
6 Tbsp. parmesan cheese

I use a food processor to mix my dressing, but you can use a blender, and if you’re halving the recipe, a magic bullet type mixer works too!

Start with the garlic and mix until fine. Add the oil and fake eggs and mix till well combined and starting to thicken. Add salt and pepper, enough so you can see the pepper throughout the dressing when you mix again and then add the lemon juice. Mix well. I usually use a spatula between adding ingredients around the edge to make sure everything is getting included. Then add half the parmesan cheese and mix until combined. Add the remaining cheese and let everything mix well for awhile. Then taste test (my favorite part)!

We add our dressing to Romaine lettuce with lots of black olives and sautéed chicken breast. One of our go-to meals. You can add croutons if you enjoy them too.

Feel free to give it a try and let me know if you enjoyed it. And if you’re not the biggest garlic fan, just use less. You’re going to love the texture of this dressing. Happy cooking!

  1. Sounds delicious!!! Thanks for sharing!! Do you just use the egg substitute to avoid raw eggs?

    1. Yeah, that's just always how I've done it. It will work just fine with real eggs if you prefer. 😊 Let me know if you try it. We had dinner at my cousins house last night and she tried it, reading the recipe right off here. Turned out great. It was cool to have someone else try it and get to be there. Hehe. 😊
