CAESAR SALAD WITH CREAMY CAESAR DRESSING

 







CAESAR SALAD WITH CREAMY CAESAR DRESSING

This dressing is the best!! My husband loves this salad dressing so much!  He uses it on so many things…just because it adds flavor and gives him the salt he often craves.  I like this dressing as one does not need a raw egg.  The nutritional analysis in the box is for the dressing.  See Helpful Hints.

 

Salad:

8 cups shredded Romaine lettuce (2 L)

1/cup grated Parmesan cheese (75 mL)

6 slices crisp, cooked bacon, crumbled

Creamy Caesar Dressing:

2 tbsp mayonnaise (30 mL)

2 tsp Dijon mustard (10 mL)

2 tsp lemon juice (10 mL)

1 tsp crushed garlic (5 mL)

1/tsp salt (2 mL)

1/tsp black pepper (2 mL)

1/cup grated Parmesan cheese (75 mL)

  (the kind in a can is fine)

1 cup light-tasting olive oil (250 mL)

 

Salad:  In large bowl, toss lettuce with Parmesan cheese and bacon bits, if using. Pour some Creamy Caesar Dressing over salad just before serving and toss to coat well. Serve immediately. 

Creamy Caesar Dressing: In blender, combine mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, garlic, salt and black pepper; blend.  Add Parmesan cheese; blend.  Through opening in lid slowly add olive oil while the blender is running at low speed.  Serve immediately and refrigerate leftovers.  

Helpful Hints:  This dressing should last 2 weeks in the refrigerator.  I did the analysis for the dressing separately as this dressing makes a lot and chances are you will not need it all.  The nutritional analysis for the Caesar salad alone to serve 6 is: 79.4 calories; 9.1 g protein; 3.7 g fat; 1.3 g fiber; 1.1 g net carbs.
