We use this salad dressing all the time. Before we took dairy out of our diet, we’d make our usual faux caesar dressing, using parmesan cheese to make it salty and a cheesy. But, with the substitution of lemon or lime, it doesn’t taste all that different! The key to this recipe is crushing your garlic. I have a crushing stone that I brought back from Nepal and use every day. But, using the side of a good thick chopping knife can do the trick or using your garlic press can work, too. Just be sure to keep in all the pulp.
Paleo Caesar Dressing
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
3 Cloves Garlic, crushed
Juice of half a lemon or lime
2 tsp Fish Sauce
2-3 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar, Fruit Scrap Vinegar (these are so easy to make at home!), or Apple Cider Vinegar
Put all ingredients into a mason jar stir or shake and you’re done! Save the excess in your jar for future salads. This should last you for the week or longer. I put my jar in the fridge and then take it out a half hour before eating so the olive oil can liquify.

How did you feel about the experience once you’d completed the whole 30 days? Would you do it again? Have you retained any elements of it permanently?
