Caesar salad has been a family favorite of ours forever! Everyone loves garlic in our family so it’s a win-win all the way around. I’ve always made my own dressing from scratch but had previously used store bought mayo which is full of inflammatory oils, sugar and things I don’t think are food. When we started to clean up our food, I started to make my own mayo as it is super simple and delicious! If you’re not that adventurous, you can still buy a quality mayo that isn’t full of junk, such as Primal Kitchen or First Choice Foods. Check out my recipe for Homemade Mayonnaise if you’re feeling like it’s something you might like to try.

We eat our Caesar salad without keto croutons most of the time, but always add some chopped bacon to garnish our salad. Who doesn’t like bacon right? Okay, well the two of you over there just simmer down! LOL
