I made some homemade caesar salad dressing which called for an egg yolk. Does anyone know how long the dressing is safe to eat?

    It is the same as mayonaise. The lemon/acid in the dressing essentially cooks the egg. It will last at least a week in the fridge - and really just goes "bad" when the oil turns. My mother kept mayo in THE PANTRY for months and we (5) survived.

    All that being said, I throw out homemade mayo/ceaser after about a week.
