Caeser dressing

One egg yolk = about a cup of dressing

Use this recipe as a guide, if it seems wrong to you adjust accordingly = recipes don’t work, guidelines and techniques do

4 yolks
6 preserved anchovies – salt oil type
4 cloves garlic
50g or 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
50ml red wine vinegar
50ml lemon juice
20ml soy sauce
10ml Worcestershire sauce

300ml plain oil eg grapeseed/canola etc
200ml olive oil

10ml tobasco or siracha
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


A stick or immersion blender is best but a food processor or bench-top blender works too

Blitz yolks with first group of ingredients
Slowly add plain oil, if you do it fast it wont emulsify (If get too thick thin with a tablespoon warm water or other liquid eg soy, vinegar etc)
finish with olive oil
Season and add tobasco
Taste and adjust to your liking

    Love a good caesar dressing but I have never added tobasco before – the extra bite must be fabulous.
