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.

every night, I have this ritual where I scroll through the photos taken from the day on my phone and pick a favorite, posting it up on my stories with the hashtag #favoritepicoftheday. it’s a fun, sometimes therapeutic way to end and reflect on the day. as I was going through it tonight, the TV was on and I heard the news. ruth bader ginsburg passed away tonight. immediately, I felt sadness and a bit of worry. a worry of the implications politically of her passing. there’s so much at stake in this upcoming election and you all know I don’t get political on here very often, but seeing roma’s little smiley, silly face made me realize that if I’m not being a good role model and using this platform to make the world a better place for her, what kind of mother am I? so VOTE, VOTE, VOTE. 🇺🇸 and as the late RBG said, “real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.” here’s my step. 💕 #rbg #ruthbaderginsburg ...

testing new recipes for my partnership with @cookunity and figured I'd share more about it, in case you're new here or missed the announcement earlier this summer (it's still summer, isn't that crazy?! I'm mentally in fall mode already 🍂☕)⁣

you can order four of my recipes (Lentil Meatloaf with Cauliflower Mash, Turkey Bolognese and Sweet Potato Noodles, Spiralized Beet Arroz con Pollo, and Beef Taco Skillet) completely cooked and delivered to you! all you have to do is heat them up and they're ready for eating - I'm always impressed and shocked by how fresh they look and taste! 👏🏼 and don't forget to use code INSPIRALIZED for $50 off your first #cookunity order 💰⁣

next up? my Kale and Butternut Squash Lasagna! Lu tested it out for me today and he said, "it's just as good when you make it at home!" so, needless to say, get excited for this meal - and stay tuned for an announcement when the meal becomes available for delivery (so soon - subscribe to my newsletter, link in profile to stay in the know!) 📥⁣

are you excited for this recipe? I'd love to know!⁣

that's all. savoring the final days of summer and then the cozy fall days, enjoying meals in our backyard. 🌳
