Healthier Caesar Salad Dressing

Tuesday, June 30, 2015
Caesar Salad is a family favorite for an easy dinner during the summer in our house. This Healthier Caesar Salad Dressing recipe is a must for your next Caesar Salad and super easy to make.

It's been super hot here the last few weeks, way warmer than usual for Seattle so we've been barbecuing and enjoy cold foods as much as possible in an attempt to keep the house cool. 

When the weathers hot Caesar Salad is a staple in our house.

Sometimes we enjoy it as a side but more often then not we toss in a little grilled chicken or steak and call it a meal. The other night we stuffed it in pita bread for a quick and easy dinner.

The kids always love when I serve things in pita bread and it makes an easy lunch or dinner on the go.

I usually make Caesar Salad with this Healthier Caesar Salad Dressing to cut back on calories and increase the protein by using low fat greek yogurt over traditional egg yolks or mayonnaise for a healthier option.

This dressing is so easy to make you will no longer have a need to buy dressing from the store.
