Creamy Caesar Dressing

 

I have always been a fan of salads, and this homemade creamy dressing will make even a plain Caesar salad taste delicious.  But why have a salad with just romaine lettuce, parmesan cheese and a few croutons when you can have a delicious Cobb Chicken Caesar salad?  Either way, this dressing is so easy to make, and it tastes so fresh and delicious!!

Ingredients:

1 cup plain Greek yogurt (201 grams)

1/2 cup grated *asiago or parmesan cheese (74 grams)

4 anchovy fillets

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

3/4  teaspoon fine kosher salt

3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions:

Put all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until combined.  Place in jar or bottle with lid.  *Parmesan or asiago cheese will work well in this recipe.

Dressing will keep refrigerated for 4-5 days.  Enjoy!!

I hope you make this delicious dressing, and if you do, please tag me on Instagram @goodeatsbymimi.  I would like to hear from you and see your photos!!
