Healthy Shrimp Caesar Salad




Shrimp Caesar Salad (with homemade dressing and croutons)

We use this recipe for low-fat caesar dressing from here:
• 1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise

• 1/4 cup water

• 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

• 1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste (you can buy this at the grocery store, its pretty cheap)

• 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
• 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

• 1/8 teaspoon dry mustard (we use just a bit of whatever regular mustard we have)
• 2 garlic cloves, minced
(B usually does 1/8 c. regular mayo and 1/8 c. fat-free as a compromise)

I then chop up some romaine lettuce (a lot of it) and some green onions. We buy pre-cooked frozen salad shrimp which are easy to defrost (just run under cold water in a strainer). We make croutons in a frying pan with 1 tbsp. olive oil and seasoning salt with whatever bread we have on hand (last night we used foccacia, yum!). Mix it altogether and toss on some asiago cheese and you've got a well-rounded, satisfying dinner in 10 minutes max.
