Making caesar salad just a bit healthier

Deb Rondeau presents her favourite healthy Caesar salad dressing.

Caesar salad doesn't have to be a diet buster.

Caesar salad doesn't have to be a diet buster.

Juice of 1 lime

1 egg (I omit this)

½ tsp of dry mustard

Freshly ground pepper

1 ½ tsp anchovy paste (I omit this)

½ tsp Worcestershire sauce

3 Tbsp wine vinegar

4 Tbsp olive oil

3 cloves of garlic, crushed

Mix all dressing ingredients and store in a glass jar in the fridge until needed. To prepare salad, rip romaine lettuce, add desired dressing and toss. If you are adding grated parmesan cheese and croutons give a final toss (I omit this).

For a complete meal, add a portion of organic chicken breast

NOTES:

You will want to bring the jar of dressing out before using (room temperature) as the oil will harden somewhat. Use dry lettuce leaves so the salad dressing will cling. I wrap my lettuce in a towel and store in the fridge in a plastic bag.
