Chicken Caesar Salad
Strawberries with Minted Yogurt

Cooking time: 25 minutes for menu             Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

   Not the 'classic' Caesar, but delicious... And not high in calories like the restaurant versions.  It's made with a yogurt based dressing and the chicken is simply grilled.  Use anchovy filets or use anchovy paste that you get in the tube.  We'll use it again during the summer.

Chicken Caesar Salad

Total time: 25 minutes
     Grilled chicken and a yogurt dressing keep the calories down on this salad; the Parmesan and the anchovies keep the classic 'Caesar' flavor high.

Fresh Strawberries with Yogurt and Mint

   A bit of sugar and Greek Yogurt is wonderful with fresh strawberries.... and ever so much healthier than cream.  If you have fresh mint - that will finish it just right!
