Introduction

This is an unbelievable MUCH healthier version of traditional Caesar dressing! I used egg beaters instead of raw egg yolks- and substituted avacado as a thickener to cut down on the salt from the usual parmesan. I also substituted some lemon juice for the normal vinegar the recipe calls for to keep the avacado from turning. This is heavenly served over grilled Romaine( Yes I said GRILLED romaine) with either shrimp or chicken , boiled eggs and croutons!

    They are usually in the same area as all the canned meat and fish...like Tuna. They'll be near the canned clams, shrimp and sardines. You can also substitute anchovy paste- 1 teas per anchovy.
