Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Cardini’s Caesar Dressing

Out of all the products I’ve featured as Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks, this Cardini’s Caesar dressing is one of the things I’ve been buying the longest!

Cardini's Caesar Dressing

Are you a salad dressing purist, or someone who doesn’t mind a good bottled dressing if it has great flavor? I’m somewhat in the middle on that, but this Cardini’s Caesar dressing is something I’ve been buying so long that they have changed the package several times and even changed the name a bit since i first featured it! The daughter of a good friend calls this stuff “Kalyn’s Dressing”, so that gives you a hint about how much I like it!

Easy Low-Carb Cucumbers Caesar

And probably my most-used recipe featuring this dressing is Easy Low-Carb Cucumbers Caesar, something that used to be requested a lot when I was catering houseboat trips, and one of the easiest recipe on this site, if you can even call it a recipe! If you like cucumbers at all, I promise you the idea of diet food will never cross your mind when you eat them with a little Cardini’s Caesar.

I also love this dressing just drizzled over tomatoes, or eaten over Romaine lettuce for a simple salad, and I wouldn’t mind it at all as a dressing for Low-Carb Caesar Salad with Kale, Romaine, and Shaved Parmesan, Low-Carb Warm Scallop Caesar Salad, or Crunchy Low-Carb Chopped Salad!

Cardini’s is available at most major grocery stores in the U.S., and sometimes I can find the large size from Costco. If you can’t find it where you live, Cardini’s Caesar Dressing can be ordered from Amazon.com. (affiliate link)

Is there a ready-made salad dressing you love? I’d love to hear about it in the comments if others have discovered some great dressings.

  1. The Cardini Caesar dressing mentioned does not exist anymore. The packaging was changed to a light green label. The recipe was changed as well. The taste is vinegar over powering everything else. Don’t buy it. (light green label) The dark green label is pictured above.

    • It’s true that the label in this photo has changed. But in my store I still find Cardini’s Caesar in a bottle with a dark green label and I’m not noticing much difference (if any) from the dressing I spotlighted here. I’m sorry you’re not having that same experience.

  2. Brenda, I liked that lemon herb dressing too but haven't seen it for a long time.

  3. Cardini's used to make a Lemon Herb Salad Dressing that was the bomb on just about any kind of fish. I don't think they make it any more as I haven't seen it for years. Shame, as it was a staple at our house. – Brenda

  4. Mary Ellen, I'll have to check that out. I didn't realize they sold their dressing or that it didn't contain sugar.

  5. I love the Italian Dressing sold at Olive Garden. It's made with soybean oil and is South Beach Friendly. I have only found it at the restaurant. I run into the bar area then run out. Knowing me, I'll gain weight just smelling their food.

  6. I’m always thrilled when I see something here that I can buy locally. I am sure I have seen Cardini’s.

    Newman’s Own is good, too.

    You know, I love a meal of tomatoes and dressing, especially in summer.

  7. You have an excellent blog about recipes.

  8. My whole family is totally addicted to Newman’s Own Olive oil and vinegar dressing. It is sugar free, which is why I first tried it 7 or 8 years ago. It is basically the only brand I buy. (Otherwise I make my own.)

    Oh how I have tried to replicate the flavor in a homemade dressing… but somehow Paul Newman has concocted some kind of magical dressing that refuses to be imitated.

    LOVE the stuff. (Can you tell I love it?!)

  9. Hi kalyn
    Made your Chicken Soup with Garbanzo, adapted a little to suit my tastes. But it turned out great and thanks for the recipe
    My post has al ink to yours
    Thanks Again

  10. I’ll vouch for Cardini’s as well. VERY good.

  11. I can vouch for Cardinin’s caesar…it is the best I have ever eaten…..I found the large bottle at Shnucks yesterday…….I noticed they others too but i will stick with this!

  12. If you don’t have a Costco, BJ’s has an absolutely fabulous Caesar dressing – their (house brand) Berkley & Jensen Fresh Garlic Caesar Dressing. It’s also made primarily with soybean oil, but with the addition of olive oil, fresh garlic, and reggiano parmesan cheese.
