Healthy Caesar Salad Dressing

DSC00798

Hello everyone!

It’s been a crazy few weeks in Sara’s world.  However, I still managed to go to school, work, and work out today just in time to be able to write a post or two before bed!  I spent quite a bit of time cooking today when I had time because there were so many recipes I wanted to try!

I found a few different recipes for a healthy Caesar salad dressing but I was not very impressed with how a lot of them were looking.  I decided to start with a base and then go from there.

This recipe is anchovy-less and egg-less so there’s no blending, or fishy taste if you aren’t into that sort of thing.  I’m not a seafood fan no matter how much I try to like it, so even though I like regular Caesar, I like this one as well.  This is a super easy recipe that requires one jar and will serve 1 salad for a family or 4 side salads!

Here’s what I came up with:

Ingredients:

1/3 c. plain Greek yogurt–you’ll want Greek so that it is thick and not super runny

1/2 Tbs. Parmesan–I recommend the ground cheese for the dressing and grated or shaved for the salad

2 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 tsp. lemon juice

1/2 tsp. spicy brown mustard

Salt and Pepper, to taste (I recommend Pink Himalayan Salt because it’s super salty and will give you that Caesar taste with less sodium)

1 Tbs. + 1 tsp. olive oil

2-3 tsp. water

 

Combine all of the ingredients except for the water.

Put the lid on and shake it until it is mixed together and thick.

 

Using a fork, mix in the water until you get the consistency you want.

That’s it!  So easy.  And now it’s Romaine time.

This recipe tastes just like a recipe from a restaurant!  You’ll never need that bottled stuff again.  Plus, it’s so much healthier with the Greek yogurt over mayo, tons of oil, egg, etc. and it’s lower on sodium. 

Have a wonderful Monday night!

Stay Serendipitous!

XOXO Sara

  1. This was really good! I doubled the recipe and added a little less oil, and used garlic powder instead of cloves. Will make again.

  2. I am trying to eat clean so always steer clear of ceasar salad. We can now indulge in my husbands favoriate salad. This is so delicious and easy. Thanks
