Yummy Caesar salad dressing ... in the Thermomix

We recently bought a BBQ chicken from the shop and decided to use some of it for a Caesar salad. I've posted in the past about my Caesar salad, where I usually use the Cardini's Caesar salad dressing for the salad, but this time we were out.

I decided to try my hand at making my own Caesar dressing instead and looked around for a recipe to use. I knew I wanted a recipe that used anchovies but also not a raw recipe that used egg yolks that were uncooked.

This recipe that I found turned out to be perfect and it seemed simple enough to do and convert in the Thermomix so that's what I went with.

Here's what I did:


  • 2 small garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon anchovy paste
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, from one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • In the Thermomix bowl, mix together the garlic, anchovy paste, lemon juice, Dijon mustard and Worcestershire sauce on speed 7 for 5 seconds. Scrape down sides.
  • Add the mayonnaise, Parmigiano-Reggiano, salt and pepper and mixed until well combined on speed 7 for 10 seconds. Taste and adjust to your liking.

I used 4 or 5 (I can't remember exactly!) cloves of garlic because I like garlic, plus instead of anchovy paste because I didn't have any of that, I just used whole anchovies and blended it up in the Thermomix.

For the mayonnaise, I used whole egg mayonnaise instead of the usual Kraft or Praise mayonnaise, which I find tends to taste a bit sweet and vinegary at the same time, and I'm not a fan of. I think whole egg mayonnaise generally tastes a lot better, but of course, if you prefer a lighter dressing, by all means use a low fat or fat free mayonnaise.

This recipe takes next to no time at all to make and it is so tasty, there was no need to add any salt or pepper.

The next time I need Caesar dressing, I'm not going to the store for a bottle, I'm going to make it myself!

If you do make this, be sure to post pictures for me to see either on Instagram - be sure to tag me with @langshipley or on my Daz In The Kitchen Facebook page.
