Skinny Caesar Salad

Of course, I got this recipe in a magazine (Health) and tweeked it a tiny bit. You could omit the chicken and serve this as a side salad. The shaved parmesan made this recipe! Walmart doesn't ususally carry anchovy paste but Kroger does. Since it all goes in the blender anyway, I used anchovy fillets (they are in a little can near the tuna).
Ingredients:
head of romaine lettuce torn into bite size pieces
olive oil for sauteeing chicken
1 pound chicken, seasoned with salt and pepper
dressing:
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup soft silken tofu
2 T lemon juice
2 T olive oil
1.5 tsp Dijon mustard
1.5 tsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 T minced garlic
1 tsp anchovy paste
2 T grated Parmesan cheese
Topping:
1/4 cup shaved parmesan cheese
1.5 cup fat-free croutons

Directions:
Basically sautee seasoned chicken in a bit of olive oil. Slice thinly when cooled. Blend the dressing ingredients in a blender until well-combined. If needed add 1 T water to thin it. Toss lettuce, croutons, and dressing in a large bowl. Divide salad among 4 plates. Top with the chicken and shaved parmesan.
