No Yolk Caesar Dressing

Back in college I had a love for caesar salad.  Who doesn’t?  I ate those salads all the time!  And then…I got sick.  I think the dressing was old or made with a bad egg…and I was so so sick.  And so I swore off cesar salads for life.  Now that I’m several years removed from the food poisoning – I’ve been thinking about Caesar salad again.  But the thought of raw eggs in my dressing still makes me cringe.  So I came up with the idea of making a yolk free dressing.  Kid and pregnant lady (me!) friendly!

I played around with the recipe and came up with this easy, no fail, Caesar dressing.  I subbed mayo for oil and raw eggs.  You get the same taste without the risk of food poisoning.  I took a Caesar salad dressed in my homemade dressing a friend’s house for dinner and they all loved it!

When making a Caesar Salad – I love Anna’s homemade croutons – so good!  It’s also a must that you have shaved parmesan.  And lots of it for that matter!

This dressing is perfect for a classic salad, but also great on a sandwich.  A chicken Caesar salad will hit the spot at lunch time.  So forget those raw eggs – and go for a no yolk dressing!
