When Jamie and I first started dating and we went out to dinner, Jamie would order a caesar salad before his entree every single time.  Little did I know at that time, but it is a Warden boy thing to do.  The first time we went out to dinner with his brothers they all ordered a caesar salad before their entrees, and continued to do so every other time we went out to dinner.  I now know that it is a fact that the Warden boys love their caesar salad and since the key to a mans heart is through his stomach – I knew I had to master it.

I looked at the ingredients in different recipes and they all had mayonnaise in them.  Ewww – I cannot stand mayo!  I opened the refrigerator and looked around for something of the same texture.  I came across plain greek yogurt… I like that and so does Jamie, and even better it worked in our “wedding diet” (well mostly, minus the cheese but we just ignored that).  I made the dressing and served it with Romaine lettuce and chicken.  Jamie just about died – he thought I bought it at the grocery store and couldn’t believe that I had used greek yogurt.  I was so happy I had pleased the biggest caesar salad critic. :)
