  • Just ask your doc...they will know best. I think if you get those spritzer things its OK tho.

  • If you are eating at a restaraunt, ask the server if the dressing is made on site and if it is made with raw eggs. Not every caeser salad is made with raw eggs, so some of them would be safe.

  • I ate plenty of Ceasar Salads and had a healthy baby girl. Always ask your doctor any question you have even if it seems dumb, just to be sure and not to have to worry about that anymore. Plus I don't know about you but I love ceasar salads...lol

  • A ceasar salad itself of course is fine, its the dressing that is the worry, which is made with raw eggs, however, it isnt hard to find a solution to that problem. When you go to by some, look for a label that says it is pasteurized. Then it is 100% safe. But always ask your dr.
