A lightened up take on classic Caesar salad made with Greek yogurt and parmesan panko crunch.



2 heads Romaine lettuce

3/4 cup plain greek yogurt

12 cloves minced garlic

Juice of 1 lemon

3 tablespoons good olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoons dijon mustard

1 1/2 teaspoons anchovy paste

1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

23 dashes Worcestershire sauce

pinch of salt

fresh cracked black pepper

1/2 cup seasoned panko breadcrumbs

2 tbsp grated parmesan

1 tsp olive oil


Wash and prepare romaine lettuce.

For the Greek yogurt Caesar dressing:

Whisk together Greek yogurt, minced garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, anchovy paste, mustard and Worcestershire sauce.

Stir in 1/3 cup parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

For the parmesan panko crunch topping:

Heat 1 tsp of olive oil in a skillet. Add panko bread crumbs and toast until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl to let cool. Stir in 2 tbsp of parmesan cheese.


I like things garlicky so I usually use 2 cloves of garlic. Start with one and then add more if you want more garlic punch!

I prefer a thick and creamy dressing but if you would like it a little thinner, you could add a bit of water 1 tbsp at a time for desired consistency.

This recipe is enough for 2 people as a main salad and 4 people as a small appetizer. There will be dressing left over and it will store well in the fridge in an airtight container for about 5 days.
