My do-it-yourself Caesar salad dressing with no mayo was created out of necessity. (I used to be out of mayo).
But, it seems to be a lot lighter and nonetheless scrumptious with out mayo or egg yolks! I additionally make a salad dressing on a regular basis with out mayo – try DIY Salad Dressing.

This salad doesn’t have a halo. Until now.
The magic of this dressing is anchovy paste:

I do know that Romaine lettuce was contaminated earlier than Christmas with E. Coli however it’s now thought-about okay to eat. They tossed out all of the lettuce and hopefully we cannot have one other drawback. I purchase complete Romaine hearts, chop them up roughly, and wash and rinse them in my salad spinner.
What makes this dressing work is utilizing Greek yogurt as an alternative of mayonnaise for the creaminess. I did add 1 tablespoon of olive oil in order that it would not style too flat with none fats. It works!
