High Protein, Low Fat Caesar Salad Dressing! Christina Martin – Tao to Wellness
At Tao to Wellness we love protein! We see the benefit in helping manage and completely eradicate so many illness and ailments. For me personally, I feel like I’m always trying to get enough protein in my day while keeping carbs down… it’s a day to day grind, especially now that I live in New York City or should we say the Carb capital of the country, it’s so easy to grab something while I’m running around the city– albeit scrumptious, it’s carb heavy!
So in an effort to sneak in as much protein as possible, I created this salad dressing the other day. I wanted something creamy and different than my usual olive oil with salt and pepper. I wanted something with a little kick to it too, like a caesar without the anchovies or calories!
Behold, my creation! (It’s ever so slightly on the sour side due to all the Fage, you could cut it a bit with Mayo if you’d like but then you are taking away grams of protein!)
