EDR Lighter Caesar Salad

With a taste just as good as the original, no one will know that you've made their favorite Caesar salad a little lighter. Don't worry, we won't tell.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup low-fat (1 percent) milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 large head romaine lettuce, washed and torn into bite-sized pieces

What to Do

  1. In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients except the romaine; whisk until smooth and creamy.

  2. Place the romaine in a large salad bowl and toss with the dressing. Serve immediately.



  • If you want this to be like the authentic Caesar salad, top it with croutons - but in moderation. Simply toss cubed day-old bread with a bit of garlic powder, salt, and pepper, then toast in a 300 degrees F. oven until golden.
