Homemade Healthy Caesar Salad

I have a friend who has a few allergies and one of them is vinegar. Looking through ingredients for some stuff and a lot have vinegar as a base especially salad dressings. I have been testing some ingredients and looking through online and found some awesome recipes to substitute vinegar. This recipe will be one you save and use time and time again.

How to Make Healthy Caesar Dressing

When it comes to caesar salad dressing , it’s typically made with eggs and loaded with processed oils, but I’ve created a delicious, healthier avocado caesar dressing that’s creamy and light but still packed with all the caesar flavor you love.

Bonus points: this dressing couldn’t be much easier to make – just throw everything into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth! No separating egg yolks or whisking. Simple and easy to make

Anchovies are Packed with Nutrition

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room: anchovies. I know they’re scary and a little weird, but let me tell you – they are nutrition powerhouses and are what gives caesar dressing that unique flavor! They are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are really important in the standard American diet. They are also high in calcium and vitamin K, which help with bone health (yes please!). Last but not least, they pack a surprising punch in the protein department! If you’re freaked out by using anchovy fillets, you can also use anchovy paste (found in your grocery store near the tuna) and honestly I use the paste more than buying a can of anchovy fillets.
