Recipe Notes

The original Caesar Salad used egg yolk and oil to make a mayonnaise combined with the lemon, parmesan and mustard. This version has the same terrific creaminess, is lower in calorie and ticks all the flavor boxes.

This recipe is rich, creamy, and tastes like any Caesar Salad because it has all the elements that your mouth expects. I will say this over and over: the best ingredients make great food.

The best part is that it has two elements (2 points) of your Mediterranean diet score. Veggies, yogurt, and great quality cheese all in a delicious, low-calorie salad.
