Vinaigrette Caesar Salad Dressing

This garlic packed dressing is not approved for date night, but is sure to keep the vampires away! Homemade Vinaigrette Caesar Salad Dressing is sure to be a staple in your home once you realize how easy, delicious and affordable it is to make!

Oh, how I love Spring! I love the fresh abundance of cheap produce, the new-found energy to host social gatherings and being able to wear shoes that are not rated for -40 degree weather. Can’t forget about the birds, bunnies and tulips!

I also enjoy eating lighter meals at this time of year. I feel less compelled to spend long amounts of time in the kitchen after work as there are so many things to do and enjoy. Why spend an hour stirring a hot pot of soup when you can go outdoors and listen to the birds? When I am feeling particularly energized to explore outside I quickly chop-up fresh veggies and grill a chicken breast or hard-boil eggs and serve as a light, yet energizing, entrée salad. But a salad is only as good as it’s dressing! Treat your wallet and taste buds to a quick and easy Homemade Vinaigrette Caesar Salad Dressing.

Passed-on to me by a family friend (and tweaked and perfected over the years), this Vinaigrette ode to Caesar salad dressing packs a garlic punch but is complimented by a lemon-y and light flavor. If you’ve ever been to a dinner party at my house, you know the one!
