Caesar salad dressing is made with olive oil, garlic, anchovies, egg yolks, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.
This is a tricky one. Salad to generally considered healthy but addressing with too much oil in fat contact will have higher calories. Keeping salads light on the dressing and not too oily will help make the salad more healthy overall.
The salty anchovies in the dressing give it a fishy taste. Anchovies are small fish that have a strong and salty taste, often described as umami. Another famous dish that contains anchovies is pasta puttanesca.
