    Default Caesar Salad whilst Pregnant

    So DH and I are staying in a pretty post hotel and are thinking of going to the restaurant for dinner tonight. I have been craving Caesar Salad for a few months but I thought I read somewhere that it was a no no whilst pregnant.
    Obviously taking into account it may be served with a poached egg (will check/change to hard boiled if need be) What about it is the food poisioning risk?

    Default Caesar Salad whilst Pregnant

    I thought it was the dressing that was the issue?
    Either way, I'd eat it, but I'm not overly cautious when pregnant, I just follow common sense really.

    I thought also The dressing? I avoided anywhere the dressing was homemade, and possibly in a flash restraunt they make their own. I wanted it so bad during pregnancy too.

    I think it's mainly the raw egg in the mayo. You could ask what sort of dressing it comes with? I dare say it's "homemade" though if it's a nice restaurant.
    Also the lettuce needs to be washed thoroughly. Which I'm sure they would. I'd eat it.

    Our local pub makes the best Caesar salad, but I asked about raw eggs and they said they use them in their dressing so I just make my own whenever I have a craving for it!

    I didn't ask about the egg in the dressing, the did a hard poach3ed egg for me. Was so Delish I only fitted in about half of it, was trying to eat more and freaked out that I had left out brand new Camera in a shop. Cam racing back to the room to find it here. Now DH isn't happy that I freaked him out though.
