Caesar salads were the first salad I ate when I was little. (I think it was only to steal my mom’s croutons.) I still really like Caesars now, but they’re usually saturated in a rich, fatty dressing. I found this recipe for a healthier and homemade take on Caesar dressing from The Forest Feast using Greek yogurt and a few other ingredients. Inspired by living in Ithaca and its Moosewood-roots, I decided to try this modern twist on a classic Caesar with Greek Yogurt Caesar Dressing. The outcome was delicious.
Ingredients (makes about 2/3 c with 1-2 T servings).
- 1/8 c light olive oil
- 1/2 c non-fat plain Greek yogurt
- 1 t minced garlic
- 1 T fresh lemon juice
- 2 t dijon mustard
- Combine all dressing ingredients in a blender or mini food processor and blend until smooth.
- Toss with your favorite salad.
- Serve and enjoy!
Dressing adapted from The Forest Feast’s “Kale Caesar with Polenta Croutons.”
