While I am a fan of traditional Caesar dressing, it is bogged down with egg yolks. Store bought dressing tends to be full of ingredients you can’t pronounce.
This recipe just replaces the egg yolks with yogurt and I swear I can’t even tell the difference.
To make it extra special, I toast 2 cups of day old bread, like ciabatta, that has been drizzled with olive oil, salt and pepper, for homemade croutons.
