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.
