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.

Last year I had the AWESOME opportunity to take a tour of an egg farm (or is it a chicken farm???). I got to meet the chickens up close and personal, and follow the eggs from the cages all the way to the cartons and packaging. Did you know that Ohio is ranked No.2 in egg farming for the nation? They produce more than 7.6 BILLION eggs each year!!

Having spent time on the farm, I was pleasantly surprised at how well the chickens are cared for. And how much the farmers care for their animals. I was also pretty overwhelmed with the sheer number of eggs that come through these farms, and how each one is checked. WOW!

  4. I don’t like order Caesar salad at restaurants because I never know what’s in the ingredient list. I love this homemade version because I can see exactly what’s in it and customize it to my tastes. Love the addition of hard boiled eggs!

  5. This looks FABULOUS! I feel the same way about Caesar Dressing so I’ve never attempted it. You, my friend, just changed that!

  8. Love that you used hard boiled eggs in this dressing, definitely going to try it 🙂

  10. Caesar salad is the favorite salad at our house as well. I have never tried making Caesar dressing for the same reasons! Too intimidating! But I do LOVE homemade salad dressing. I definitely need to try this! YUM!

  11. we have a caesar salad at least once a week, but I have nveer made my own dressing its the one kind I will buy, I LOVE that your recipe used hard boiled eggs – we always have those around, and NO anchovies 🙂

  12. Karen

    No anchovies or raw eggs!! This is wonderful. I do not eat Caesar dressing for those very reasons. I will give this a try. It looks delicious.

  13. I LOVE Caesar dressing! And the salad. Both 🙂 Cute picture with the chicken! Looks like a fun tour!

  14. Thanks for the great recipe! I love ordering caesar salad at restaurants, but I’ve never tried making my own dressing!

  16. This looks so creamy and rich! We both love a good Caesar salad, so I’m sure we’ll be using this!

  17. Mir

    I’ve always had that fear too with Caesar! I love your solution. Now I don’t have to be creeped out by raw egg!

  18. Such a fun way to use up those extra hard boiled eggs!!! I never would have thought to try hard boiled eggs in this dressing. Of course I never would have tried the original with raw eggs and anchovies either 😉

  19. Jane

    Absolutely, hands down, the best caesar dressing I have ever tried!! Just made it tonight and it was amazing!! Definitely my go to caesar dressing from now on!! Thank you for such a delicious recipe!!

  20. Hi Aimee! I’m a long-time follower of your blog, and a quiet one, but I just couldn’t resist telling you how much I love this dressing! Caesar salad is my favorite, and I’m always buying jarred dressing when I have no idea what’s in it! This is a great way for me to make it at home. I’ve always shied away from making homemade Caesar dressing because I don’t want to deal with anchovies. I know it may seem silly, but I don’t want to touch them. And now, I don’t have to and I can still make my homemade dressing! Thanks so much for a great recipe 🙂

    • aimee @shugarysweets

      Aw, thanks for the sweet comment Mary! Doesn’t seem silly to me…I wouldn’t touch an anchovy either 🙂 I hope you enjoy the recipe!!

    This sounds so delicious and I’m a big fan of hard-boiled eggs and caesar salad, so I can’t wait to try. Are there any substitutions for the canola oil by chance?

  24. I’m assuming that there is no lettuce, Parmesan or chicken in the dressing.

  25. This sounds perfect! We just found out that my daughter has a dairy allergy, but she loves Caesar salad dressing! Thank you!!!
