Florida Vegetable Recipe

Healthy Homemade Caesar Salad

(Photo Below)
Amount Ingredient
1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon dry mustard (powdered)
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 cups favorite lettuce
3/4 cup small shrimp or blue crab meat
3 to 4 teaspoons fresh chives cut in at least 1/2-inch length
  kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
1/2 cup reduced fat croutons
1/4 cup fresh-grated Parmesan cheese

Wisk all ingredients for dressing together until emulsified and chill in refrigerator until serving time. Lightly toss lettuce with shrimp or crab meat and fresh chives with the dressing a little at a time. You can always add more dressing if you need, but if you add to much its almost impossible to remove it. Serve with extra dressing on side and garnish with fresh ground black pepper, croutons and fresh-grated Parmesan cheese.

4 servings

Look for "Fresh from Florida" ingredients at your grocery store.
