It's Time To Get Fat. Real Fat!

Caesar Salad Chicken Fat Dressing

Who doesn't love a good, classic Caesar salad? Crunch, crispy, light and zesty… there's nothing better than this easy caesar salad with chicken fat dressing recipe! To me, what makes a perfect Caesar is the dressing. It really can either make or break the salad. I've found that by using Schmaltz (aka chicken fat) as the base, it allows for a light yet creamy texture that doesn't overpower the salad and adds the perfect amount of flavor. You can serve the healthy Caesar salad dressing right away for a lighter consistency or refrigerate for 2 hours for a creamier taste, both are equally as delicious!


    • 1 egg + 1/2 yolk
    • 1/2 cup melted Fatworks Schmaltz (chicken fat)
    • 2 tablespoon avocado oil
    • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

    • Pinch of pepper
    • 1/2 Meyer lemon, juiced
    • 1/2 Meyer lemon, zest
    • 1/3 cup homemade yogurt
    • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
    • 1 package Romaine lettuce leaves
    • 3 slices sourdough bread, toasted

Add the egg and chicken fat into a mixing bowl and whisk briskly with a fork. Make sure the melted chicken fat has time to cool slightly before combining with egg so that the egg does not cook.


 Add remaining ingredients (except lettuce leaves) to mixing bowl, reserving about 1/3 cup cheese and beat with an immersion blender until well combined.


 Cover dressing and refrigerate for 2 hours for a thicker dressing or serve immediately for a lighter consistency.


 Drizzle dressing over lettuce garnished with chopped red onion, cheese, and edible flowers.
