"I came, I saw, I conquered." --Julius Caesar

The refrigerator light goes on...

The original Caesar Salad used egg yolk and oil to make a mayonnaise combined with the lemon, parmesan and mustard. This version has the same terrific creaminess, is lower in calorie and ticks all the flavor boxes.

The best part is that a salad made with this dressing has two elements (2 points) of your Mediterranean diet score. Veggies (in the salad), yogurt, and great quality cheese all in a delicious, low-calorie salad.
