Caesar Dressing Recipe

It's summer & with that comes the desire to enjoy delicious, crunchy & cool salads. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine principles, changes of season like going from winter to spring/summer and summer to fall/winter signals our body to a change in cravings. Soups and stews (unless chilled) take a back burner to salads and raw veg. Unfortunately, many of us know how laden with crap regular salad dressings can be. I encourage you to try out a homemade dressing like the Caesar Dressing recipe I have included here. I Cleaned it up from my favourite Joy of Cooking selection.
