Healthy Homemade “Mock” Caesar Dressing Recipe

Healthy Homemade "Mock" Caesar Dressing Recipe

A lot of people fail to realize just how easy it is to make delicious dressings and dips at home. By doing so, you can avoid many nasty additives and preservatives in store bought dressings, even the so-called “natural” ones.

I created this super easy “mock” caesar dressing recipe when we were on the GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) diet. On the diet, store bought dressings are not allowed, and many ingredients are limited. I wanted something super simple to make with ingredients that I almost always have on hand.

I call it “mock” caesar dressing because it doesn’t match a lot of the caesar dressing recipes out there, but to me it tastes nearly identical to caesar dressing. Your mileage may vary, but I think you will like it either way.

  1. As I have a lactose intolerance I sometimes have to miss out on dressings and it’s good there are ways around it. It would be a good idea for a book on mock sauces and dressings that are low in fat, tasty and healthy. I have friends who have to be so careful with sauces as they are allergic to certain ingredients and they sadly have to miss out on them to be on the safe side.

  2. | am always on the look out for healthy recipes that are also budget friendly and this one is perfect to add to my collection. Thanks for all the wonderful information and links. I am certainly going to make use of them.
