1 cos lettuce, or romaine
1 clove of garlic
75 g low-fat natural yogurt
2 tablespoons olive oil
a handful of Parmesan cheese, freshly grated, plus extra to serve
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
juice of ½ a lemon
2 anchovy fillets , in olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
I've made my own version of the classic Caesar salad, which is a little bit healthier on the dressing – it's all about taking influences from the original dish and bigging up the flavours and textures where you can.
1. Snap off and discard any wilting or dark green outer lettuce leaves. Trim the leaves, then cut the head into quarters lengthways. Chop into chunks and get rid of the core. Wash under cold running water and dry in a salad spinner.
2. To make the dressing, peel and finely chop the garlic. Whisk the yoghurt, olive oil, grated Parmesan, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and lemon juice together in a bowl.
3. Roughly chop and add the anchovies, season and whisk again.
4. Toss the lettuce in the dressing, then scoop the salad into a serving bowl.
5. Coarsely grate over a little extra Parmesan, if you like. Toss again, then serve.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
