Caesar Salad is an affordable luxury in my book. Unfortunately it is usually loaded with fat. Here’s a slimmed down version from Prevention that still satisfies.
Prevention says about this recipe: “A serving of Caesar dressing can contain more than 25% of your daily-recommended fat. Our version has half the fat and the same rich, tangy flavor you crave.”
A serving (2 cups of salad) is only 130 calories yet has 5.5 grams of protein.
You can top the salad with grilled/cooked chicken or shrimp to make it a fresh-tasting meal.
The recipe has plenty of flavor with parmesan cheese, olive oil, dijon mustard, lemon juice, worcestershire sauce, and garlic. It also calls for anchovie paste, which I don’t keep on hand. I might just skip that since there’s so much flavor from other ingredients. For the classic Caesar salad you should really use romaine lettuce. It has great flavor, plenty of crunch, and lots of vitamins. Iceberg lettuce has crunch, but not much else. We love romaine!
