Light Caesar Salad Dressing Recipe

 

I can’t wait for summer! I’ve already gotten the gardening bug because I’m determined more than ever to try and grow more fresh fruits and veggies at home for healthier snack options.  Along with this, I’ve been experimenting with some new dip and dressing ideas for my salads and veggie plates. 

One of my all time favorite dressings is a rich caesar salad dressing. I could literally eat it every day but the traditional recipe packs so much fat and calories. So why not try and make a lighter version I don’t feel so guilty drowning my romaine in! 

I opted to leave out the anchovy (it’s something I NEVER have on hand) and the egg yolk for safety reasons, so I used a light mayo instead.

Try it and let me know how you like it!

  • This is amazing. I made it and turned out really nice. I’m sure I will not buy bottled ones ever again. Thanks for this.
