Caesar Salad

Avocado makes a brilliant swap for the egg and oil in this creamy Ceasar dressing. The lemon keeps the avocado from browning and the swap tastes fantastic, making this salad a healthy choice.

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1/2 Cup avocado oil
  • 4-6 anchovy filets
  • 2-4 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Worcestershire
  • 1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 hearts Romaine lettuce, cleaned and chopped
  • 2 Ounces grated Parmesean cheese
  • tomatoes (optional)

Directions

To make the dressing, blend all of the ingredients except for the cheese, romaine, and tomatoes, in the blender until creamy and smooth. Chill. 

Toss the salad greens with the dressing, garnish with the cheese and optional tomatoes. If you have leftover dressing, it will keep without turning brown, for a few days in the refrigerator.
