Joy Bauer makes Caesar Salad dressing as a Smart Swap for lunch, as seen on Food Network's The Kitchen

Think a creamy Caesar salad dressing that’s light and still tastes divine is a dream? This Saturday on The Kitchen, author and nutritionist Joy Bauer makes this dream a reality with the mighty avocado. Instead of the traditional egg yolk and oil she swaps in half an avocado and pulses it in a food processor with Parmesan, Dijon mustard, anchovy paste, lemon juice and a hint of Worcestershire sauce.

The result is a creamy dressing with 20 calories per tablespoon instead of 180 and all the tangy flavor of Caesar dressing. “It satisfies your every need,” said Geoffrey, “the sour, the creamy.” Katie was floored, “This is going to be in my fridge at all times now.” Toss this magical creation over greens or make Joy’s Chicken Salad with Caesar Dressing
