Casey Staker, the owner of Zest Kitchen and Bar, shows us how to make a healthy Caesar Salad Dressing. Not only is this salad dressing delicious, it's also vegan and gluten-free, much like every other item on the menu at Zest.

A traditional caesar dressing is around 470 calories, with 40 grams of fat and 2000 milligrams of sodium. Zest's version of the dressing only has 177 calories, 5.1 grams of fat and only 1020 milligrams of sodium. Eat good and healthy with this recipe! Check it out below!

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup water
