1 Points Caesar Dressing
A Caesar salad has the unfortunate reputation of being one of the less-healthy salad options out there. The dressing is oftentimes made with a hefty amount of olive oil, cheese, egg, and anchovy which can make the SmartPoints add up fast. But a Caesar salad is also one of the most beloved salads out there. A steakhouse classic. We shifted from the traditional ingredients to make a SmartPoints-friendly version using zero Points® foods! Roasted garlic pumps up the flavour, and yogurt acts as a creamy olive oil substitute. We also have some simple substitutes if you are vegan or vegetarian. Swap out the yogurt for silken tofu, and omit the anchovies and add in a spoonful of briny capers.
Use it traditionally over a bed of romaine lettuce, as a spread for wraps or sandwiches, or as a dip for your favourite veggies.
