Ingredients
  

  • 1 clove Garlic Use one large or two smaller sizes. You want about a teaspoon of fresh garlic. Don't use the already diced garlic in a jar.
  • 1 teaspoon Anchovy paste If you can not find anchovy paste in your grocery then use whole anchovies in oil. Be sure the mash them into a paste with the back of a spoon.
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon juice Only use fresh squeezed, not the kind from a bottle.
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup Avocado mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspooon Pepper It's best to grind it fresh on the large grind setting

Instructions
 

  • In a small-size bowl, add garlic, anchovies, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and Worcestershire sauce.
  • Whisk for 30 seconds, being sure the anchovy is broken into tiny pieces if you had to use whole anchovies instead of paste.
  • Next, add the mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, and pepper. Whisk together until creamy and smooth.

Notes

Variations
  • Toss in a hand full of Crispy Air Fryer Chickpeas for a healthy crunch in your salad.
  • Add grilled chicken breast sliced into strips for a healthy chicken caesar salad.
  • Capers
  • Grilled shrimp
  • Add some shaved brussel sprouts with the Romain lettuce
  • Tomatoes
Substitutions
  • If you prefer, you could use a good olive oil based mayonnaise. It's a simple swap that is still a healthier choice.
  • If you can not find a tube of anchovy paste, use a whole anchovy fillet. Just be sure to whisk it well, so it becomes a paste. I like to use 3 or 4 fillets to give the dressing a more salty flavor.
