This homemade Caesar dressing is SO easy and lightened up by using a Greek yogurt base. Use it on a classic Caesar salad, wrap, pasta salad... or any salad that needs a creamy, salty, delicious dressing to tie it all together.


Units Scale
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup whole milk Greek yogurt
  • juice from 1-2 lemons
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 anchovy
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Combine. Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender or food processor.
  2. Blend. Blend on high speed until completely smooth, about 1 minute. Serve with your favorite salad or pasta salad, or store in an airtight container for later!


  1. Lemons. If you use 2 lemons, it will be VERY lemony! I like it when lemon stands out in foods, but if you want the lemon to stay more subtle and blended in, only use one lemon (or half) when adding lemon juice to this recipe.
  2. Storage. I usually store my salad dressings in an airtight jar in the fridge, but any airtight container will work. This dressing will keep for up to a week in the fridge. I love that it makes a smaller batch so it's easy to use up without wasting anything.
