This Paleo Caesar Salad Dressing recipe is creamy and light. Considering all of the food that we ate this weekend, I thought I’d start the week out with a delicious Paleo Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad. As we all know what goes into a Caesar salad, I’m just going to post the components that aren’t obviously Paleo: this dressing and our Paleo Croutons recipe (we already have Paleo Grilled Chicken, just leave off the BBQ sauce). NOTE: You can omit the anchovy paste if you are vegetarian, but it won’t taste the same. Just thought you’d want to know. Also, if you want it to be a little thinner, just add a little more oil, we tend to stick to the lower end of that measurement.
Well, we just got back from Nashville and I’m going to break down our trip, so I can remember it all. Bear with me, this is will be a little wordy!
DAY 1: You’ll never believe what happened. We are standing in line at the concert (Patrick Watson and Keane) and Angel is sees this transformer above us and says “You know, those old transformers blow up really easily” and we have a short side conversation about this transformer and go into the venue. Patrick Watson plays, which is phenomenal, and the main band comes on stage. 6 songs in, while playing “Silenced by the Night” the sound cuts off. The band finishes the song with the crowd singing, but after, they start looking around like they are confused. Turns out, the very same transformer caught fire! They had to cancel the concert and evacuate the building. Thank goodness we went around to the side of the buses though, Patrick and band were giving an impromptu concert and Angel got autographs from the band Keane. He even got a few words in there with the band! Not all was lost, but it will be forever known as the concert that was “Silenced by the Transformer”. Haha!
Paleo Caesar Salad Dressing
1 Tbsp Anchovy Paste
2 Egg Yolks
¼ tsp Coarse Sea Salt
¼ tsp White Pepper
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
2 Garlic cloves
2 Tbsp Paleo Mayo
1 Tbsp Stoneground Mustard
¼ cup Olive Oil*
Optional: Parmesan Cheese – if you are a Primal dairy-eater
*If you like thicker dressing, use more oil…up to ¼ cup additional.
Blend all ingredients except the oil in a blender until thoroughly incorporated and smooth.
Slowly add the oil to emulsify. If you are using ¼ cup for a thick dressing, you don’t have to add it slowly, you can just add it all and blend again.
This recipe can easily be made Vegetarian, just omit the anchovy paste!
Makes about ½ cup
