Making your own Caesar Dressing and croutons is the secret to lighting the calories. The fat is still high, but it's all from olive oil, so don't fret too much about it.

Recipe Ingredients for Ellen's Caesar Salad

6 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp. mustard, Dijon
1/4 c. olive oil
1/2 c. shredded parmesan cheese
1 egg
5 slices bread, sour dough, 1/4" thick, medium size
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. oregano
1 tbsp. olive oil

Recipe Directions for Ellen's Caesar Salad

  1. Dressing:

  2. In a jar, combine the garlic, Worstershire, mustard, olive oil, parmesan, and egg. Shake until well blended. Let sit at room temperature until ready to serve (store in 'fridge if you make the dressing hours in advance of service -- but the salad is best at room temperature.

  3. Croutons:

  4. Lightly toast the bread and then cut into crouton sized pieces.

  5. Measure the garlic power and oregano into a plastic or paper bag. Put the bread in the bag, and then spray with canned olive oil or add 1 tbsp. olive oil. Shake well.

  6. Bake in a 400F oven for 5-7 minutes until crispy. Let cool to room temp before adding to the salad.

  7. Note: salt and pepper can be added to taste, but there's enough flavor in the dressing to get by without it.
