Has anyone come across a substitute for egg in caesar salad dressing? There is a soy mayo out there, but my son cannot use it - if I recall, I think there was sunflower oil in it, and that's one of his allergens. I'm hoping there might be some other suggestions to use as a thickener in salad dressing.

Have you tried an egg replacer such as celli mix. It is starchy and you add water. It works great if you just need it to thicken and bind.

For salad dressing, you might need the oil from the egg...so try 1 tbsp water, 1 tbsp oil and 1tsp baking powder.

Our family can finally eat caesar salad! I finally found a substitute for egg that works for our family - sour cream!! I'm sorry this won't work for those with dairy allergies, but this will work for those allergic to the following: peanut, tree nut, sesame, egg, fish, shellfish, sunflower, mustard, poppy seed, green peas and pineapple

1-2 heaping tablespoon(s) sour cream
1 clove garlic
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup parmesean chees
ground pepper to taste

Blend very well using a food processor (or substitute kitchen appliance that will blend at very high speed). For best flavour, store in fridge 24 hours prior to serving. Blend very well again prior to serving.

I make this recipe all the time and it doesn't use any eggs. This dressing does not have a creamy consistency though. You can omit the mustard or anchovy paste if allergic.

BEST-EVER CAESAR DRESSING

1/2 cup good-quality olive oil

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice or Realemon

2 large garlic cloves, crushed

1 teaspoon anchovy paste

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire

1/4 teaspoon each of sugar, dry mustard, salt and freshly-gound black pepper

1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan

Measure all ingredients into a medium-size bowl. Whisk until blended. Makes about 1 cup to toss with 2 heads of romaine lettuce, broken into bite-size pieces. Sprinkle with croutons or crisp bits of fried bacon.

We use Kraft Ultra Low Fat Ceasar Dressing as it has no eggs. I am not sure on the rest of the ingredients. Their Low fat Ceasar still has eggs but the Ultra low Fat one doesn't.

We also use Veganaise which is a soya product as is really good as a salad dressing.

Also you could use the dip called Helluova Dip to thicken as it has no eggs
