This clean eating Caesar salad dressing is a healthier version of the traditional salad topping. Typically, Caesar dressing is rich, fatty, and delicious. This recipe changes two of those three qualities and provides an option for dressing your salad that is not going to undo the benefits of cutting calories with salad. Best of all, it uses fresh, whole ingredients, so you also avoid all of the chemicals and preservatives found in many store-bought salad dressings.

Clean eating dressings are a great alternative to the usual dressings most people use these days. They are incredibly easy to make, but improve the quality of the food you are eating by a great deal. This makes it a great health trade-off – you get a big benefit for just a little effort. Most people also find that homemade dressings also taste better than store-bought. Your tastes buds have grown accustomed to the highly salted, chemical taste of convenience foods, but once you taste a homemade dressing, you will never want to return to bottled dressings. Homemade dressings put a whole new spin on your run-of-the-mill salad.

Caesar dressings are a great idea to accompany Italian-style dinners. Caesar salad is also a great option for lunch or as a dinner entree, especially when you top it with barbecued grilled chicken or shrimp.
