This creamy healthy caesar salad dressing will make any salad fantastic. It’s super creamy, packed with salty, tangy flavor, and is perfect for topping on any hearty salad. Made a little healthier with tahini, manchego cheese, and some tasty herbs and honey.


  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • juice of 2 lemons – about 2-3 tablespoons
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons tahini paste
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup

  • 2 cloves garlic, grated or minced
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1/3 cup grated manchego cheese, plus more for serving 
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley


Add all dressing ingredients to the bowl of a food processor or blender and pulse for 30 seconds to combine and emulsify into a creamy dressing. 


  • Parsley or cilantro will work in this recipe although the cilantro will slightly alter the taste it will still be crazy delicious.
  • You can use honey or real maple syrup as the sweetener for this recipe.
  • Manchego cheese or parmesan cheese will work. Just make sure it is freshly grated.
