  • Author: Gail
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


This 5-minute, IBS-friendly low FODMAP Caesar salad dressing is so easy to make and great to drizzle on low FODMAP Caesar salads, raw or roasted vegetables, wraps, and more. Low FODMAP, dairy-free, keto, low carb, Paleo and Whole30 compliant.


Units Scale
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil mayo (or your preferred mayo)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, freshly-squeezed
  • 1 teaspoon anchovy paste
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon coconut aminos (or Worcestershire sauce if not eating Paleo/Whole30, see note)
  • 3 tablespoons garlic-infused olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste, see note)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutritional yeast (optional, see note)


  1. In a small bowl**, add mayo, anchovy paste, Dijon mustard, coconut aminos, and lemon juice and whisk to combine.
  2. Whisking constantly, slowly drizzle garlic oil into the bowl.
  3. Taste and add salt (if needed), pepper, and nutritional yeast (if using) and whisk to combine. Taste again and adjust seasonings as desired.
  4. Serve on your favorite low FODMAP Caesar salad recipes, like my Low FODMAP Shrimp Caesar Salad with Pork Rind Croutons, on raw or roasted veggies, on wraps, and more.
  5. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. Stir before reserving.


  • See post above for detailed FODMAP information on each ingredient.
  • *Anchovy paste doesn't make the dressing taste fishy, nor do you have to handle any fish as you are using the easy-to-use paste, which can be found in many grocery stores in the condiments or refrigerated seafood section as well as on Amazon.
  • **If you’re not anticipating leftovers and plan to eat your salad right away, Caesar dressing is traditionally made in the bottom of the salad bowl prior to the salad ingredients being added. If you aren’t eating it right away or don’t plan to eat it all in one sitting, it’s best to make in in a separate bowl so your salad ingredients don’t become mushy.
  • Coconut aminos – you can also use tamari or soy sauce if not eating Paleo/Whole30 – use tamari for gluten-free.
  • Salt – the anchovy paste will bring saltiness to the dressing, so taste before adding salt to see if it needs more to your taste.
  • Nutritional yeast – if you prefer not to purchase this ingredient and don’t need dairy-free, you can also add finely shredded parmesan cheese to taste for some cheesiness.
  • One batch makes enough dressing for one 4-serving Caesar salad.
  • While the low FODMAP Caesar dressing is dairy-free, Paleo, and Whole30 compliant, the cheese used in the salad in these photos is not dairy-free, Paleo or Whole30 compliant.
