Quick and Easy Homemade Caesar Dressing Recipe

Did you know that the original Caesar dressing was created in Tijuana, Mexico?  I read that somewhere… go figure?  In this post, I share an easy spin from that amazing original that is much quicker to whip up to enjoy with fresh vegetables from the garden and pasta dishes. This is my Quick and Easy Homemade Caesar Dressing Recipe.

Fresh is most certainly best when it comes to dressing to dress up homegrown veggies.  Below is a favorite salad dressing I love to use on veggies and kinds of pasta for a quick meal.  Be sure to take advantage of the printable option available on this recipe share by scrolling down.

For this recipe you will need the following:

Here it is…. download or bookmark but be sure to ENJOY!  Don’t forget if you don’t like anchovy do not add this!  If you throw capers into the salad it gives it that same fish pop without the fish.
