Could I make a bigger batch of this Caesar dressing to keep handy? How long would it keep?
Yes! Great idea to make a bigger batch. Refrigerate extras in a sealed container (like a mason jar) for 7 days.
290 MG of sodium per serving. Is the sodium count only from the sea salt or do other ingredients have sodium too? I struggle with sodium above about 1500 MG per day and I gain several pounds of fluid from one day to the next.
Always looking for the lowest sodium options.
Hey there! Yes, the sodium mostly comes from the sea salt, but there’s a hint in the bread & mustard too. What’s so amazing is potassium from veggies balances sodium! So….when you are eating sodium with veggies like in this salad recipe, it won’t effect you as much! One of the best things you can do if you are sodium-sensitive is eat more POTASSIUM…VEGGIES!! xx
