Homemade Low Carb Caesar Salad Dressing
Anyone can make an egg salad. It’s basically hard-boiled eggs and some kind of dressing (usually mayo and mustard). Well, the secret to this egg salad is the low-carb Caesar salad dressing.
In addition to the normal mayo and olive oil mixture, I added a few surprising ingredients to make it taste just like my favorite Caesar salad dressing. I used anchovy paste.
Don’t be too worried about it! Even if you haven’t ever tasted anchovy paste (or you know you don’t like anchovies) I only used 1 tablespoon of it in the entire recipe.
The anchovy paste adds some healthy fats and salt to the salad dressing. You won’t need to add very much extra salt to taste. When you add the Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and garlic, you won’t even taste the anchovy paste.
Unique Egg Salad Recipe
I love eating egg salads for lunch and finding new ways to make it taste different each time. I think this Caesar salad dressing really makes it taste completely new and yet very memorable at the same time.
It’s a light protein-packed lunch or side dish. I like to place this salad on some large-leaf lettuce or just eat it with a fork.
If you are allergic to eggs, replace the eggs with a can of chicken that you drained. This dressing makes a delicious chicken salad too.

For some crunch, top your egg salad with some of these keto toppings:
Egg Salad With Lettuce
You can even eat this as a dinner-sized entree. All you have to do is top it with some shredded rotisserie chicken. There are lots of other ways you can serve this salad too.
Serve it in a low-carb cheese wrap or even fill half an avocado with the egg salad.
Are you a steak fan? Fry some thin-sliced steak and add that on top for a dinner idea too.
How To Store Caesar Salad Dressing
This dressing will last about a month when you store it in the refrigerator. It might separate, so you’ll have to shake it well before you use it. The best way to store it is in a mason jar with a tight-fitting lid.
If you are looking for keto-friendly dinner salads, this is going to be one of your favorites.
