Extra creamy and bursting with savory flavors, this homemade Caesar dressing tastes far better than any variety you might find at your local grocery store, and it is a lot healthier for you, too. Have you ever read the ingredient list on a bottle of store-bought salad dressing? It can be pretty scary.
Keto Caesar Dressing that’s Rich, Creamy, and Deliciously Dairy Free
Some people don’t realize that plain old mayonnaise is naturally dairy-free. It’s simply an emulsion of egg (which is dairy-free) and oil. Kyndra uses mayo as a shortcut ingredient in this keto dairy-free Caesar dressing recipe, but she gives you the option to go completely homemade. There is actually a recipe for from-scratch mayonnaise in Dairy-Free Keto Cooking!
Since her focus is low carb, Kyndra keeps things gluten-free, too. But it’s important to source your ingredients carefully. In the U.S., Lea & Perrins Original Worcestershire Sauce is dairy-free, gluten-free, and soy-free by ingredients. But it might contain gluten and/or soy in other countries, and some other brands do contain gluten and/or soy. Be sure to check the ingredient statement and consult the manufacturer if potential allergen cross contamination is a concern.
