Lemony, garlicky and every bit of good Homemade Caesar Dressing.
In the process of completing this here blog post, something happened. It was getting late, I saved my work and went to bed. When I returned the next morning to continue where I left off I was surprised to see a blank white page as my website. For a good 10 seconds I completely panicked. Where TF did my website go?
No but seriously!
It’s quite possible I was the one to blame. ( I ‘m no professional/ tech-y person by any means). After some researching (aka googling/youtube) I figured out what happened and have since corrected the problem.
I’ve learned that things go wrong all the time! How you react plays a vital role in solving the issue.
Now with that out of the way lets get back to the real reason why you’re here!
HOMEMADE CEASAR DRESSING
Because of a l little hiccup, I decided to post the recipe directly in the caption on Instagram so I’m glad to finally be able to share on the good ol’ blog.
I was brainstorming what content to shoot for IG stories for Spoonful of Melanin. Honestly, there’s no elaborate process of what I decide to cook. I simply wanted a Caesar salad.
This dressing only uses 8 ingredients:
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Plain Non Fat Greek Yogurt
To make this you’ll probably need a blender but it’s certainly not a requirement.
Simply add all the ingredients to a blender and blend for 15-20 seconds. The texture should be nice and creamy but one consistency.
If you so desire you can whip up this dressing by hand using a whisk. The texture will still have chunks of parmesan and garlic and require a good stir before each use.
Traditionally caesar dressing uses anchovies. It really is the star ingredient that gives caesar dressing that distinct flavor. This recipe does not use anchovies but still has the same great taste.
There are many other ways to enjoy caesar dressing besides a salad. Here are few suggestions
Dip with your favorite fresh veggies
Tossed with veggies before roasting
Add it as condiment to your sandwiches, burgers, wraps
Make a caesar slaw
