That Caesar salad you ordered at a restaurant because you wanted something light? It can likely contain about 1,000 calories. Caesar dressing is usually made with full-fat mayo, or, traditionally, an emulsion of egg yolks and olive oil, and contains about 100 calories per tablespoon. Compare that to this version, which only has 14 (and will be finished down to the last lettuce leaf, just the same)! When low-fat mayonnaise is used instead of light, the dressing is virtually calorie-free.
