Light Chicken Caesar Salad
Why This Recipe Works
When it comes to light Caesar salad recipes, the dressing is the most crucial component. Many low-fat versions omit the traditional egg and oil emulsion, thus removing the creamy character of the dressing. We wanted to find a suitable replacement for this component, without compromising taste and richness. For this job, tasters were most impressed with a combination of two ingredients: buttermilk for its pleasant tang and silkiness, and reduced-fat mayonnaise for added richness. With this duo, we knocked down the amount of fat in our Caesar salad recipe considerably.
