Gluten Free Caesar Salad

I have a few salads that we make and this one is always a favorite.  Caesar always sounds hard but it is really easy.

What you will need:
Anchovies or anchovy paste (optional)
GF Dijon Mustard (I use Grey Poupon)
GF Worcestershire Sauce (I use Lea & Perrins)
greek yogurt
parmesan cheese
GF Croutons (I place some EVOO, salt, garlic powder, oregano and paprika on GF bread and toast.  I then remove and cut into cubes and put back in the toaster at 200 until dry and crispy.)

1.  In a bowl add a few anchovies or about 1 inch of anchovy paste, 1 clove of garlic and some fresh ground pepper.  Mix it all together, crushing the garlic and anchovy until it is a mash.

2.  Add 1/2 tsp of GF Dijon Mustard and 1/2 tsp of Worcestershire and continue to mix.  Add the juice of 1/2 of a lemon and mix some more.

3.  Add a large tablespoon of plain greek yogurt and keep mixing.  Then add 3 tablespoons of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) and keep mixing.

4.  Add in some fresh romaine lettuce that you pre-washed and dried and toss to evenly coat the lettuce with your dressing.

5.  Add in your GF croutons and grated parmesan cheese (I use 1/4 to 1/2 cup).  Toss and serve on plates that you placed in the freezer before you started so they are nice and chilled.

6.  Enjoy as a side salad or add some grilled chicken or shrimp and call it a meal.
