Caesar Salad with healthy dressing

April 5, 2018
Lyndall McAlpine

I have salad or soup nearly every lunch so I try hard to mix them up when I can.

This a simple, healthy version of an old favourite. I’m happy to have it meatless (I get protein from egg) but you can add chicken if you wish.

As well as needing good fats and protein with each meal for satiety and overall complete macro balance, avocado has also been shown to significantly enhance carotenoid absorption from salad and salsa. So add avocado to your salads as often as possible to get the most out of your healthy eating.

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cos lettuce
  • 1/2 lebanese cucumber
  • few slices red onion
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 hard boiled egg

The dressing also contains good fats, and no added sugar (which most bought dressings are loaded with).

  • 1 Tbsl cashew nut butter or tahini
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard or more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Tamari (wheat and gluten free soy sauce)
  • 1 anchovy chopped finely (optional) – good omega 3!
  1. Chop salad ingredients
  2. Mix dressing, adding enough water for desired consistency
  3. Toss together and Hail Caesar!

(Serves 1)
