We all love a classic Caesar salad. However, just because it's a salad doesn't mean it's necessarily healthy. There is usually little nutrients in the lettuce that is usually used, high carbs in the croutons, and tons of fat in the dressing.

Here we went down a more nutritious route, but believe me there is not skimping on flavor!
