Super Light Caeser Dressing


Look, let’s be real.

I know we’ve all made our resolutions to get healthier and fitter and eat better. Me too, for sure, but I am just not willing to give up certain things and I will go out of my way to keep them in my diet and tweak them again and again until I have made them acceptably “light”.

So I don’t need to tell you that I have tweaked my favourite dressing! I mean, I love salads and everything but if you have them for lunch every day (like I intend to do….just for a while), they better be good. And let’s face it, it’s all about the dressing.

So I proudly present my light Caesar dressing. Seriously, you could have it as a cocktail it’s that good!!!

    Great idea, to use yogurt as a base. However, I’m not a big fan of light mayo, as it contains all kinds of starches/modifiers that I’m not fond of. I think I’ll adopt the yogurt part and use my simple homemade mayo with it. 🙂

    I think this recipe sounds wonderful and so much better than buying commercially prepared dressing. I don’t keep anchovy anything in my pantry but will get the paste so I can make this. Happy New Year!!

I would love to hear from you...
