Healthy Caesar Salad Dressing

I love Caesar salad. But do you know normal caesar salad dressing has almost 80 calories per tablespoon? It’s one of those sneaky traps that turns your healthy salad into a disaster. This simple dressing offers a healthy alternative to the traditional caesar dressing. It can be prepared quickly and used as a sandwich spread, vegetable dip, or of course, on a salad!

Caesar Salad Dressing


2 tablespoons of low-fat yogurt
1 Tsp of Red wine vinegar
1 tsp of Dijon Mustard
1 Egg Yolk (raw or hardboiled, your choice)
1/2 an avocado (optional)
2 pieces of anchovies (optional)
Black Pepper (add as you like)
Additional spices (add as you like)


Just mix all ingredients in a blender until everything is mixed up.

Serving suggestions

  1. This dressing might be slightly thinner than the traditional Caesar dressing so you need to cut up your salad greens into smaller pieces and mix well.
  2. You can also use this as sandwich spread as an alternative to mayo
  3. Use it as a dip for vegetable sticks.
  4. The dressing can be saved in the fridge up to 5 days.
  5. Add your protein. Shrimp and chicken works very well with this dressing.
  6. For vegetarians you can skip the anchovies.

Tonight I made my Caesar Salad with Grilled Chicken Breast. Healthy high protein meal!
