Despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of the recipes here on the blog are sugary treats, I actually eat healthy food too! Shocker, I know ;). All things in moderation. I love salads, especially really good caesar salad. Unfortunately, caesar dressing is quite unhealthy and the low-fat store-bought versions that I have tried were seriously lacking. But when I saw this recipe on Skinnytaste, I had to give it a try. Is it as good as regular caesar dressing? Not quite, but very close! And it’s easy enough to make on a weeknight. Just dump everything in the blender. And done =). Make sure to buy good quality parmesan cheese. Please don’t use that stuff in the can. Pretty please? I promise it will make a huge difference. Enjoy!
