This Caesar salad dressing is amazingly easy to throw together and sure hits the spot when you want a Caesar but still need to keep it AIP, Paleo, Whole30 or even Keto!
This is my new go-to dressing. I looove a good Caesar.
My mom used to make the best homemade Caesar salad dressing, and I have incredible food memories of her salads! Although super tasty, I was no longer able to eat it once I adopted a gluten-free, dairy-free, yet alone AIP lifestyle.
So you all know I needed to make my own that I can eat and feel good about! Plus one that I can throw together in minutes, because, busy Mom over here!
What you need to make this AIP Caesar Salad Dressing
You’re going to need some full-fat coconut milk for this dressing. The creamier the coconut milk, the creamier the dressing!
Now I used to always use Aroy-D coconut milk because the ingredients always listed just coconut and water. However, the most recent cans I bought are also listing an additive. Bummer!
Whether it’s always been in there, that I cannot say. I do know I seem to tolerate it just fine, so I will probably still use it when I’m in a pinch because it’s the most convenient for me to buy.
Both work well in this dressing. If you’re using canned coconut milk and want your dressing creamy, try to scoop the top of the can where it tends to be thicker.
Apple Cider Vinegar
You know pre-aip, I never even tried fish sauce? Crazy to think I was missing out on such a flavourful seasoning. Redboat fish sauce is my absolute fave now!
Garlic has some amazing health properties including anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and antiparisitic, just to name a few. This dressing is the perfect way to get in that raw garlic and all the benefits that come with it!
You can add this in the dressing itself or just season to taste on your salad, totally up to you!
