Classic Caesar Dressing [Food Processor Attachment]

The Vitamix Food Processor chops and combines all the ingredients in this classic dressing with ease. It creates a thick dressing meant to coat romaine leaves with particles of cheese, and a slight hint of anchovy.


  • 6 (20 g) oil packed anchovies, drained
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup (35 g) parmesan cheese, grated, in blender or processor
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) extra virgin olive oil
  • ¾ cup (180 ml) vegetable oil


  1. Combine the olive oil and vegetable oil in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Fit the Food Processor with the Multi-Use Blade.   Place all other ingredients besides oil into the Vitamix container and secure the lid.  Start the machine and process for 45 seconds.
  3. Once 45 seconds has elapsed, pour the combined oils into the Small Food Pusher that has a small emulsion hole incorporated at the bottom. Allow this oil to slowly drizzle into bowl while machine is running. 
  4. Process for an additional 10-15 seconds to ensure all oil is incorporated.

Chef's Notes

  • For more versatility and freshness, chop your own Parmesan by cutting a small block into cubes and using the Multi-Use Blade in the Food Processor Work Bowl to break it down.
  • A small amount of water can be added to this dressing if you prefer a thinner style.
