Skinny Caesar Dressing

This thick, creamy dressing is full of flavor. Use a good Romano cheese, as it makes a big difference in flavor. I prefer Trader Joe's peppered Romano. 

Note that one tablespoon of lemon juice leaves a lot of lemon left over. I freeze lemon juice seasonally in ice-cube trays; one cube provides a neatly measured tablespoon of juice and could be a good resting place for your leftovers. 

I use my Preethi mixie to make this dressing. Non-desi households will find success with a Magic Bullet.

1/3 cup grated Romano cheese
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 clove garlic, grated
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 1/2 tsp anchovy paste
1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 c nonfat Greek yogurt

Place all ingredients in a small food processor; blend until smooth. Makes 3/4 cup dressing, or enough for several nights of large salads.
