I am a sucker for a huge Caesar salad. It’s almost maybe even a comfort food for me – loads of crunchy romaine, garlicky croutons, snappy cherry tomatoes (and my favorite addition: avocado)? So good. I’m also a sucker for lots of salad dressing. This means that I have to create salad dressings that aren’t just lower in calories and fat, but actually delicious – and this one is genuinely good for you. I actually made this recipe years ago and use it as my Caesar salad dressing standby – I almost always have everything I already need in the fridge and pantry. It’s so creamy and flavorful, I dare you to feed it to someone who would be none-the-wiser and see if they can tell that you just saved them like 300 calories on salad dressing. I bet they’ll have no clue!
- 1/2 cup 0% fat greek yogurt
- juice from 1/2 lemon (about 1 tbsp)
- 2 tsp dijon mustard
- 1.5 tsp worchestershire sauce

- 1/4 tsp salt
- freshly cracked black pepper (important that it's fresh!)
- about 1 tablespoon water for desired consistency
- Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Done.
- Refrigerate for up to a week in an airtight container.
