We didn't eat as many healthy foods as we wanted to this summer. Sadly, it was a summer of drive-through lunches and meetings in restaurants with way too much temptation. I think it's safe to say this was a summer spent on the run.
Luckily, we have very health conscious friends who help us be our best selves, not our most self-indulgent selves.When we arranged for a picnic at Ravinia, an outdoor concert venue north of Chicago, Joe tossed up this tried-and-true light Caesar salad that he's been making for years. It's unbelievable quick and tasty.
Wine, fruit, and salad were all we needed to round out an evening under the stars, listening to Crosby, Stills, and Nash, and finally sitting back to relax.
¼ cup fat-free egg substitute
1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
3 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp anchovy paste or Asian fish sauce
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 large head romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
1 1/2 cups nonfat croutons
Place the lettuce in a bowl and pour the dressing over it. Add the chicken, croutons, and cheese and toss until well combined.
