Notes

By replacing most of the oil in a classic Caesar salad dressing with a purée of canned tuna we decrease the fat and increase the protein by eight times. The resulting dressing can makeover a simple green salad into a entrée that delivers protein, and transforms a popular creamy vinaigrette into a versatile cooking sauce.
