Classics are classics for a reason. They’ve stood the test of time and are still around. Caesar dressing has been around for just about 100 years. It was invented in Tijuana by, yep you guessed it, a guy named Caesar. Caesar Cardini. The dressing is a wonderful combination of lemon, olive oil, egg, vinegar, lemon juice and a few other ingredients. Cardini’s Caesar salad dressing uses those same great classic ingredients. This is a great tasting bottled dressing.

The right mount of vinegar

I really enjoyed that Cardini’s Caesar salad dressing wasn’t too vinegary. It’s nice and smooth. Too much vinegar can really detract from what could be a great dressing. Not here. The vinegar has the perfect balance, along with the other ingredients. It’s thick, but not too thick.

You won’t need a whole lot of this dressing to make for a great tasting salad. It’s such a wonderful flavor that you’ll find yourself savoring each and every bite. I’ve seen reviewers refer to it as ‘refreshing’ and I think that describes it perfectly.

To anchovy or not to anchovy

This bottled version does not include anchovies in the ingredients. The original dressing didn’t contain them either. I always thought it was a common addition, but turns out they were added later.
