Healthier Caesar Salad Dressing

We all love a good Caesar dressing, but we always try to avoid the excessive fat with full mayo, or especially using a pre-made bottled version. So after a little experimentation we came up with a yogurt version that really tastes good and we feel a little better about eating it. Kids love it so it gets them to eat some salad as well.

1 Garlic Clove minced
1 Teaspoon Anchovy Paste
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
1 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard
2 Squirts Worcestershire Sauce
1 Cup Plain Yogurt
2 Tablesppons Mayonnaise

Salt and Black Pepper to taste

1 Large Head Romaine Lettuce
Grated Parmigiano Cheese
2 Slices Stale Bread for croutons

In a bowl mix all the dressing ingredients together till smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use. In a large bowl tear apart (cleaned) Roamaine lettuce. Cut up the stale bread into 1/3" cubes, mix with Roamaine and Parmigiano cheese. Add enough dressing to coat lettuce fully to your desired taste. A little more cracked pepper and Parmigiano to taste. Serve cold.

You should love it, it does not lose anything to the yogurt and personally I find it much less heavy as well.
