Cheesy Caesar Salad Dressing


1 Lemon (juiced)
1/4 tsp Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
1 tsp Dijon Mustard (I used Honey Mustard)
1 tsp sugar (If you use sugar substitute, please do not use stevia, that combined with the citrus juice will have untoward digestive upset...agave nectar or honey would be better)
2 Fresh Pressed Garlic Cloves
1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese (I used Parmesan/Romano)
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil (I used Canola)


When making salad dressing, I always add ingredients in the following order.
Acid, Seasonings, Sugar, Garlic, Oil. The Acid helps to dissolve salt, and sugar.
If you do not have a Measure Mix and Pour like I used, you may shake these items in a salad dressing jar or whisk in a bowl and transfer to a serving vessel.

1. Juice Lemon
2. Add Pepper, Mustard, Sugar, Garlic, and Parmesan Cheese.
3. Whisk or Shake.
4. Add Oil. (Whisk)
5. Store in Refrigerator until ready to pour over salad. You may need to remix the dressing just before serving.
