  • Pulse the garlic and anchovies together in a food processor.
  • Add the egg yolk and process until smooth.
  • Drizzle in the olive oil a bit at a time until completely incorporated, and then with the motor still running, drizzle in the lemon juice.
  • Add the Worcestershire, Dijon, and black pepper, and pulse to combine.
  • Taste and add additional salt and pepper as desired.
  • Store in a sealed jar in the fridge up to 5 days.


  • This recipe makes about 3/4 cup of salad dressing, or about 6 (2-tablespoon-sized) servings.
  • Anchovy Fillets Substitution: You can use 1/3 teaspoon of salt instead, but it won’t have quite the same depth of flavor. Either way, be sure you don’t skip the Worcestershire sauce, which also has anchovy!
  • To Make the Salad in the Photos in This Post: Line a large bowl with 3 large handfuls of mixed salad greens. Add 1 to 2 crushed store-bought breadsticks, 2 slices of crisped turkey bacon, 2 tablespoons of freshly grated Parmesan cheese, and about 2 tablespoons of homemade Caesar dressing. Serve immediately.
