You Will Love this Ultra-Creamy Keto Caesar Dressing!
understood why I big pile of romaine lettuce drizzled in dressing was such a restaurant classic.
As an adult, I understand - it is the way everything blends together. And the dressing! Because the dressing is always the most important part of a salad.
I might have learned to love Caesar salad dressing earlier in life, but my Dad (who hates fish) told me that there was fish in the dressing when I was about five and the idea just seemed gross.
Truth be told, the idea still freaks me out a bit.
(This is one reason I’ve used anchovy sparingly, and opted for paste rather than having to actually look at the filets)
When I was in my early 20’s, I finally tried Caesar salad, and then I realized what I’d been missing.
These days, I make this Keto Caesar Dressing on a regular basis, and never get tired of it. I think you will love it too!
