This simple caesar salad dressing is an easy way to make home-made dressing with no raw egg. This dressing is naturally gluten-free.

We have been getting so many greens from our CSA lately, it’s hard to keep up. Even for me, a certifiable salad nut! That’s why I am glad there are so many family gatherings and summer festivities to which I can bring a big ol’ salad bowl brimming with green salad.

This week, I whipped up this simple Caesar dressing and made a giant salad with chopped Romaine, spinach and a little green leaf lettuce. Usually when I make Caesar, I make my own croutons, like these. But this time I cheated and used Olivia’s croutons.  I served it with this chicken, Red Hen Bread and a giant platter of grilled vegetables.

This dressing is different from classic Caesar made in the bowl because it relies on the blender or food processor to make the emulsion instead of using raw eggyolk.

This dressing is really strong, so taste as you go when you’re tossing it with your greens. I like to add a generous amount of Pecorino Romano as I’m tossing. The saltyness helps to balance the lemon’s acidity. You’ll be happy to know it can dress a surprisingly large bowl of greens [which thankfully helps make a dent in the bounty of lettuce.]
