      Disadvantages

      I like this because it keeps for approximately four weeks, but it certainly gets it use in my house.

      Tescos Caesar Dressing.


      Well i think that this is a real bargain at 88pence per bottle, and its just a great addition to any salad.

      Ingredients : Water. Vegtable Oil. Spirit Vinegar. Sugar. Salt. Fat Hard Cheese. Pasturised egg yolk. Modified Maize Starch. Mustard Powder. to name a few.

      I cut a large bowl, especially when i have guests around, finely chop a lettace, add slices of red and white onion, or you can add spring onions finely chopped, tomatoes i like to cut mine into cubes, and add some skinned cubed cucumber. and squares of carrots. mix all together and add salt, I then add a generous dollop of this lovely tasting dressing which in itself adds a really great flavour to the salad.

      Having tried the more expensive dressings, I must admit that this dressing tastes really good for a cheaper alternative, and im always looking for ways to save a few pence.

      I like to add this to freshly boiled potatoes, and think its great to add to them giving them a really lovely flavour.

      I think that we all tend to eat a lot of salads, especially when the weather is good and also to accompany any B B Q. I would definetely recommend this dressing as it tastes really smooth and creamy and tastes delicious.

      Thanks for reading and rating my reviews.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Makes a really nice change from mayonnaise or salad cream, goes great with lettuce and chicken.

      Tesco Caesar Dressing may at first seem like a cheap imitation, but despite the low price of 88p, it is almost indistinguishable from any of the big brands. You may have unwittingly tried it before in fast food restaurants. You'll usually find it in burgers or chicken sandwiches. but that's not its best application. If you've not had it before. I definitely recommend trying some. You can't really lose at this price.

      This delicious, rich and creamy sauce complements pretty much any kind of salad you can think of, and makes a great addition to potatoes. It even makes a good substitute for butter, provided you dont use too much, as a dollop or two of it is much less fattening than lashings of butter or spread, and is more than adequate. It goes best with chicken-based meals, but this Tesco dressing is just a tad runnier than most, so its best not to put it next to any other dressings like potato salad or coleslaw, as it doesn't mix well with others. I recommend a drizzle or two on some lettuce and cucumber, perhaps with some ground black pepper on the top. Mouth watering eh?

      The taste of this stuff is about the usual strength, not too overpowering but definitely distinctive. Sort of like a tangy mayonnaise or salad cream. Its a perfectly good alternative to the afforementioned two, and also is more economical and (more-or-less) as good as the expensive stuff. I suppose the main drawback is the slightly unflattering packaging. It comes with a squeezy top with a liftable cap, easy for drizzling, or the cap can be easily removed if you want to really blob it on. The stuff looks pretty supermarket-bought, with the generic font and such, but I really can't see anyone turning their noses up at it if you're entertaining guests. Besides, you can always put it in a little cup with a small spoon.

      Whilst being a little fattening, a dollop or two won't hurt you. :)

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      An unbalanced dressing.

      Okay, I know it's not exactly summer weather at the moment, but I'm determined not to resort to winter comfort food quite yet. I've been ploughing my way through lots of salad recipes in the last few months and one of my weekly faves is a caesar salad. Classic, creamy sauce with chicken, croutons, parmesan and no anchovies (just can't get to like the salty little critters).

      Although I tend to make my own dressings, I've never attempted a caesar dressing and have always bought the same brand (Cardini). I thought I'd give a cheaper version a try this month and chose the own label Tesco dressing.

      The look of the dressing through the bottle was promising enough and indeed it looked very much as I would have expected. It was creamy in colour with specks of black pepper. The texture was thick enough to coat the salad well but still pourable. The smell was good, not overpowering.

      I poured it all over the lettuce and chicken, topped with croutons fresh from the oven and shaved some parmesan on top.

      The texture to eat was fine, but the taste was disappointing. I found it far too acidic. It really overpowered the taste of the lettuce and chicken and not in a pleasant way. Maybe I put too much on, but only used what I would normally. I ended up scraping some of the dressing off as I ate.

      So, although much cheaper than my usual brand, in fact almost half the cost, (84p vs £1.59 for 250ml bottle), I won't be buying it again. The balance was all wrong for me and if I'm eating salad in the rain it's gotta be a good salad!
