A Caesar salad on a table
Why You Should Skip Serving Caesar Salad Dressing On The Side
The Caesar salad is a timeless dish of romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese, croutons, and a creamy Caesar dressing. However, it's still possible to mess up such a simple salad.
For the best flavor distribution, you shouldn't serve Caesar dressing on the side. This is one salad that needs to be thoroughly tossed with its dressing for best results.
Toss the greens with the dressing before adding the other ingredients, and give everything another quick toss before serving. This ensures the right amount of flavor in every bite.
Opt for homemade dressing over store-bought for better flavor, and you can prepare the dressing a day ahead to allow flavors to meld in the fridge.
Homemade dressing is also customizable, whether you skip anchovies or use Greek yogurt for lighter creaminess. Just make sure to serve the salad immediately after tossing.
