Lighter Chicken Caesar Salad
Why This Recipe Works
Our biggest challenge in lightening our chicken Caesar salad recipe was the dressing. We found that we could replace most of the fat in the dressing with buttermilk and reduced-fat mayonnaise. We further reduced fat by cooking the chicken in just 1 teaspoon oil, first browning the chicken, then poaching it. To replace traditional high-fat croutons, we developed a recipe for a low-fat version.
