Spruce Up Your Greens: Healthy Caesar Dressing

IMG_7483

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

Directions.

  1. Combine all dressing ingredients in a blender or mini food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Toss with your favorite salad.
  3. Serve and enjoy!

Dressing adapted from The Forest Feast’s Kale Caesar with Polenta Croutons.”
