The Best Caesar Salad Dressing
A classic revisited. My Mom makes the best healthy Caesar salad, and she’s agreed to share her recipe with everyone. You probably have all of the ingredients for the dressing already. My mom whisks the dressing in a bowl and then soaks her croutons in it. My healthy croutons don’t hold up that well to the soak. I blend the dressing with 2 Tbsp parmesan to amp up the creaminess factor. Both ways taste great! Our family has a bit of a garlic problem (well we don’t think its a problem, but only because we all love it!), so with the garlic I’d say start low and go slow.
If I have it, I love adding avocado to my Caesar. It reminds me of a restaurant I used to go to called Hope Street in the Forest Hill Village. Bacon is obviously optional, but a little goes a long way in making you feel like you’re really indulging. Likewise the parmesan can be omitted or you can substitute it with nutritional yeast. All it takes to elevate this from a side to a main is grilled chicken, fish, meat or tofu. I’ll leave it up to you.
