Bold and Tasty Caesar Salad Dressing

Total Time

My favorite Caesar salad is served at Outback, and I have tried many recipes trying to replicate their very bold, garlicky taste. This recipe is the result of much experimentation, and is the closest I have come to caesar perfection.

Fantastic recipe. I was really impressed with the flavor and authenticity, and it was so easy to make in the food processor. I actually had to print out the recipe for few people, that's how much everyone loved it. Thank you.

Made this pretty much as written. My first taste left me a little flat, so I added 1 Tbsp cider vinegar, 2 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese, and 1 tsp white sugar. That brightened it up considerably, and everyone enjoyed it. I thought the amounts of salt and pepper were just about right. Had a bit of a strong EVOO flavor. Next time, I will probably use 1/4 c. EVOO and 1/3 c. vegetable oil.
