Grilled Shrimp Caesar Salad ..... A low calorie dressing without sacrificing flavor.

Grilled Shrimp Caesar Salad
This Caesar dressing has all of the flavor but about a quarter of the calories. It is a dressing that you will make again and again.
Dressing Ingredients:
1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
1/4 cup 1% low fat cottage cheese
2 anchovies, chopped
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 Tablespoon grated Parmesan Cheese
Freshly ground pepper
12 fresh shrimp
1 head Romaine lettuce, washed
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
Puree in blender, mayonnaise, cottage cheese, anchovies, fresh lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, chopped garlic and olive oil. Stir in freshly grated Parmesan cheese and ground black pepper. If dressing is too thick, thin down with a little warm water.
Use 1/4 cup dressing to marinade the shrimp for at least 30 minutes. Drain shrimp and grill or broil about 1 1/2 minutes per side, just until the shrimp slightly curl and start to turn pink.
Tear Romaine lettuce into small pieces and divide among four plates. Add the shrimp and dressing, garnish with parsley. Serves 4
