Classic Caesar Salad with Homemade Caesar Salad Dressing

A plate of a classic caesar salad

I have been on a caesar salad addiction the last week. Everyday I ate a bowl of a classic caesar salad. It all started when my sister-in-law made it on our recent family retreat up in Canada I usually prefer a homemade salad dressing since I can modify it and I know what is in it, so I went ahead and made a homemade caesar salad dressing. The original recipe of the dressing I adapted from momsdish.com, but I modified it just a bit and didn't add the cheese to the dressing to save on calories. 

You might think this salad is not as healthy but its more than it seems. With the lettuce, this salad contains vitamin A and vitamin C. Dill is good for digestion and promotes oral care. And garlic boosts immune system and heart health.
