Skinny Basil Caesar Cucumber Noodle Salad with Shrimp

Skinny Basil Caesar Cucumber Noodle Salad with Shrimp

I never really liked Caesar salads. I think my oh-so-refined tastebuds at a young age detected and detested the anchovies. Yea, right. Honestly, when I became the conscious age where salads were an important part of my diet for weight management, I found out that Caesar dressing was one of the fattiest. As a general rule of thumb, any dressings or sauces that are creamy are delicious for a reason: they most likely contain cream, eggs, sugar and/or butter.

Now enter the Greek yogurt craze. Better yet, enter Chobani. Chobani’s 0% plain non-fat yogurt enables the world to make creamy sauces once again: without the high fat and calorie content! It’s no secret that I use Greek yogurt in many of my pasta sauces – it’s an easy way to save some calories in a meal, without sacrificing flavor.

Today’s recipe is a skinny version of everyone’s beloved and hated Caesar. Better yet, it’s infused with basil and poured over a bed of cucumber noodles – crunchy, refreshing and love-handle-friendly.
