Easy Caesar Salad Dressing with the main ingredients of the classic: lemon + parmesan + anchovies, lightened with Greek yogurt.
Healthy Caesar salad dressing
You can serve this with romaine lettuce and grilled chicken for a fabulous light summer salad. You can also use this dressing recipe to make my Shrimp Scampi Tacos with Caesar Slaw. I also have a vegan Caesar salad that has been made dairy-free with raw cashews.
Serve this over romaine lettuce with croutons to make a Caesar salad and your favorite protein to make a meal out of it.
I've been using Anne Burrell's recipe for the egg-free Caesar dressing for a long time. It's restaurant quality and you don't miss the egg. I took the opportunity to replace the olive oil with Greek yogurt and was surprised how good it turned out. Good cheese is a must, I only use Parmigiano Reggiano or Pecorino Romano, the powdered stuff that comes in a plastic container just doesn't cut it!
How to add more protein to the salad:
- Try this with grilled chicken
- Add grilled salmon
- Add grilled shrimp
- Add hard-boiled eggs and chickpeas
How anchovy paste for anchovies sub
If you prefer to use anchovy paste here, the rule of thumb is 1 anchovy fillet = 1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste.
And for those of you who don't like anchovies, you can safely leave it out, but I think they make the dressing. Your decision!
