Have you ever REALLY, REALLY, REALLY wanted to make something for dinner, only to realize 5 minutes before start time you didn’t have everything you needed?
That happened to me just the other day when I went to make my Caesar salad dressing recipe.
I had everything I needed… except the mayo.
So I improvised, and created no-mayo Caesar salad dressing recipe that’s SO GOOD, you won’t even miss the mayo!
Homemade Caesar Dressing No-Mayo (No Egg)
Now, I realize that I could have easily made my failproof homemade mayo recipe. Because it really is failproof and it takes just 2 minutes.
But honestly? I was feeling lazy. Those two minutes were two minutes I wanted to spend on the sofa and not in the kitchen!
My laziness worked in my favor this time, because this homemade Caesar dressing no-mayo version is:
- Just as flavorful as my original Caesar dressing
- Slightly more shelf stable (because you’re not relying on mayo, which sometimes doesn’t last as long as we need it to)
- Made with yogurt, and another way to consume probiotics!
- Ready in 2 minutes
- Can be made dairy-free
Ingredients for Healthy Caesar Salad Dressing without Mayonnaise
We already know you DON’T need mayo and you DO need yogurt, but here’s what else you need for this healthy no-mayo Caesar salad dressing:
- Plain Greek Yogurt. Full-fat, low-fat and fat-free all work, but it needs to be plain.

- Anchovy filets. Or the paste, if that’s what you have.
- Spicy Brown Mustard. Or something similar, like Dijon.
- Worcestershire Sauce
- Parmesan Cheese (optional)
This might seem like a long ingredient list, but I assure you, this dressing comes together FAST!

What does Caesar dressing taste like?
It doesn’t taste like fish, I can tell you that! Anchovies are salty and briney, and they do have a distinct flavor… Caesar tastes like a more expensive, more polished version of ranch… with a kick!
