I can say that I’m totally addicted to this Keto Caesar Dressing.  Long before I was committed to the Keto Low-Carb journey, in my 20s I ate wheat.  Almost every day I enjoyed a Caesars salad and toasted bagel for either lunch or dinner.  With each forkful, I would top the bagel with salad and bite into it.  So delicious.

Nowadays being on the KETO path, I enjoy the salad without the bagel!  I like putting this quick and easy dressing on all kinds of salads.  It’s my “go-to” dressing that my husband and I eat every week on a salad.  I’m probably as addicted to garlic as I am to this dressing. So add more garlic if you desire!

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO CAESAR DRESSING?

KETO LOW-CARB 3-MINUTE VEGAN PARMESAN

In preparing this Keto Caesar Dressing you may want to substitute the Parmesan for a vegan version. With the vegan Parmesan, this dressing is just as super delicious and healthy.  The vegan Parmesan offers a good dose of protein due to the almond flour.

 

The garlic is also extremely healthy.  By chopping the garlic, you release its enzyme called alliinase that catalyzes the formation of allicin.

Allicin is a sulfur-containing compound that is found in high concentrations in garlic. It is responsible for the characteristic odor and flavor of garlic, but it also has several health benefits. When garlic is crushed or chopped, the alliinase enzyme converts alliin into allicin. Allicin is considered to be a potent antioxidant and has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. In terms of nutritional value, allicin itself does not contain any significant amount of nutrients.

However, garlic as a whole contains several vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, vitamin B6, selenium, and manganese. Garlic is also a good source of fiber and has been shown to have cholesterol-lowering effects. It should be noted that allicin is unstable and breaks down quickly, especially when exposed to heat. Therefore, to get the most nutritional value from garlic, it is best to consume it raw or lightly cooked. Additionally, some people may be sensitive to garlic and experience digestive discomfort or other side effects when consuming it in large amounts.

WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF KETO LOW-CARB CAESAR DRESSING?

This Keto Caesar Dressing is loaded with umami due to the Parmesan, some saltiness, and loads of garlic.

WHAT NON-ALC WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO CAESAR DRESSING?

The predominant taste sensations of this Keto Caesar Dressing are saltiness (added) and umami (Parmesan).  Choose a non alcoholic wine, a bold white wine with good acidity or a light, fruity red wine to match.  Why light and fruity?  Because the dressing goes over salad.  A big, bold red would dominate a salad. 

The acidity in the non alcoholic white wine or light, fruity red will nicely offset the saltiness in the dressing.  For whites think de-alcoholized Chardonnay.  Think de-alcoholized Pinot Noir for reds.  Pinot Noir offers  enough acidity to nicely offset the saltiness in the dressing.

Zero Alcohol Wine Tips:

ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.
