Hack:  Use this dressing over Brussels Sprout Caesar Salad!

Hack: Anchovies can be covered in oil and sealed in a sandwich bag in the refrigerator for up to 2 months. Alternately, they can be spread out in a single layer and frozen (still in the sandwich bag, if desired. I suggest you double bag the fillets before storing them.

  3. Thank you for this description of Homemade Creamy Caesar Salad Dressing. I love Caesar salad dressing, but I have never prepared it at home myself because my family doesn’t like it the most, as it is used to our classic salad dressing (vinegar, pumpkin oil, salt). But I used to prepare it and eat salads with this topping when I was still working in the hospitality industry. Otherwise in a slightly different composition of ingredients.
    Now I would gladly eat a salad with Caesar dressing. I may prepare it for myself and save it as you recommend. Thanks!
    I wish you all the best

    1. It’s hard to have your favorite food when no one else in your family likes it.  I have the same problem with pumpkin pie! It’s good to indulge yourself once in a while, though, so I hope you enjoy your Caesar salad!

  4. Thank you for your post. It is useful for me. I love Caesar salad and always buy the Caesar salad dressing. I thought that it is hard and complicated to make such dressing ourselves.

    1. I’m still amazed at how easy it is to make so many things from scratch (and often at a fraction of the cost).  I hope you enjoy the dressing with your dinner tonight.
