I’ve got a delicious homemade Caesar Dressing recipe for dinner! It’s so creamy and easy to make!
My family is pretty obsessed with Caesar salads. It’s one of the few salads that everyone eats, with and without chicken.
Yet I have never attempted making a homemade Caesar dressing. Until now. And can I tell you a secret?
I’ve always been afraid. I’ve seen recipes with raw egg yolks and canned anchovies, and I get a bit intimidated.
But I’ve got a family friendly recipe that has a secret ingredient: Hard Boiled Eggs.
When the Ohio Poultry Association contacted me and asked if I could make a recipe using hard boiled eggs, my mind went directly to salad.
I don’t know about you, but we have dozens of hard boiled eggs ready to use up after Easter. We color them and then we have cartons in our fridge. And there is only so much egg salad and deviled eggs we can eat.
I wasn’t positive that this would work, but I tossed those hard boiled eggs in a food processor and blended them up with some Worchestershire sauce (which is made with anchovies…no need to touch those slimy fish), and some mustard, garlic, oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. It turned out beautiful and tasted amazing!
I thought the dressing tasted even better on day two, after it had the chance to let the flavors “mingle.”
Here are a few tips for hard boiled eggs
Don’t use your freshest eggs. As Easter approaches and I know I’ll be boiling some eggs, purchase them about 10 days ahead of time.
Don’t overcook the eggs. Place eggs in a single layer in the bottom of your pan with cold water. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover and remove from heat. Let sit in boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain and cover with ice for another 15 minutes.
Peel eggs right after cooling. They are easiest to peel, and you can store them peeled in the refrigerator until ready to eat or use. Peeled hard boiled eggs should be used same day, unpeeled hard boiled eggs can stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to one week. Store them in their original carton to prevent odor absorption.
Do not leave hard boiled eggs out of the refrigerator for more than two hours.
