Caesar Dressing

IMG_6103

One of the first things I learned about my mother in law is that she is a great cook! And one of the first recipes I ever associate with her & that she then shared with me is her caesar dressing. I’ve twisted it ever so slightly over the years but it has always been a staple in our house. We even served it at our rehearsal dinner, we love it so much!

I’m sure you’ll love it too and there’ll be no need to search for a good store-bought brand when you can make your own at home!

Super easy but so delicious and flavorful!

My MIL crushes her garlic in a garlic press, but I finely mince mine. You choose what may be best for you and your family’s preferences.

Her original recipe stated to use “a lot of garlic” well I didn’t know just how much that was until I actually had to watch her make it one day while visiting because until then, mine just didn’t taste the same. My version of  a lot of garlic was 3-4 cloves, but no, she uses like 9-10? I may be exaggerating now though. I’ve lost track over the years. I may have toned it down or 6-7 may be the realistic amount. Either way, did i say it was deliciously amazing?
