Summer’s here and we’ve got salad on the brain. And what’s a salad without a flavorful dressing? One of our favorites is Caesar dressing: It’s creamy and cheesy! It’s bright and briny! It’s also super-versatile and great for so much more than salads. Drizzle it on chicken, use it as a dip, spread it on a sandwich, marinate your tofu—you get the idea. The sky’s the limit.

But, while there’s no shortage of Caesar dressing recipes out there, sometimes you just don’t feel like DIY-ing it. We hear you. That’s why you’ll almost always find a bottle of Primal Kitchen Caesar Dressing with Avocado Oil in our fridges.

Why do we love it? Let us count the ways.

This Healthy Caesar Salad Dressing Is Also Super-Tasty

In general, store-bought salad dressings tend to be loaded with sugar, salt, and saturated fats, not to mention all sorts of questionable, unpronounceable ingredients. But Primal Kitchen’s Caesar Dressing with Avocado Oil is sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy-free. In case it matters, it’s Paleo, keto, and Whole30-friendly, too.

Made with avocado oil, it has all the healthy fats that actual avocados do. It’s rich in oleic acid, which has been shown to support heart health and help improve brain function. And it’s rich in antioxidants like carotenoids, which are good for both your skin and eye health.

Despite the healthier ingredients, you still get that full-on traditional Caesar taste and texture. So what’s the secret? Coconut aminos give you that umami flavor you’d normally get from anchovies. And nutritional yeast makes it cheesy, without the Parmesan cheese.

Luckily, it’s also easy to find. Pick it up at Costco, Walmart, most Whole Foods, and more.

So if you’re looking for a new favorite heart-healthy dressing, look no more. Get shopping!
