At many U.S. restaurants, a seemingly harmless Caesar Salad can pack in nearly 1,000 calories. That’s what happens when we drench our greens with fatty, oily dressings and add calorie-dense ingredients like cheese, croutons, olives, avocados, and crispy wontons. Get all the deliciously tangy goodness of a Caesar but for about one-tenth the calories with our Pritikin Caesar Salad, always a hit in the dining room at the Pritikin Longevity Center.
Get loads of Caesar flavor, but for a fraction of the calories of regular dressing. For example, Newman’s Own® Caesar Dressing tallies up 150 calories per 2-tablespoon serving (and who’s eating just 2 tablespoons?). A serving of Pritikin Caesar Dressing is just 10 calories.
Did you know that a serving of many salad dressings has more calories than a cheeseburger? Here’s a great alternative, Champagne Vinaigrette. It sings with flavor (and will have you singing when you get on the bathroom scale). It has only 10 calories per 2-tablespoon serving.
Give your balsamic vinegar salad dressing a whole lot of zip with this recipe, plus garden-fresh complexity, compliments of the fresh basil, garlic, and shallots. And all for much less sodium, fat, sugar — and money — than most store-bought vinaigrettes. This dressing will keep well in the refrigerator for about one week.
Why mess up your arteries with all the butter and cream of regular mashed potatoes when you can enjoy the rich piquant flavors of this recipe, and with no added fat. It’s a feast for both you and your heart!
