An interesting thing happened to us this weekend. We realized that our “well-stocked’ kitchen yields us all the ingredients to readily make Vegan Caesar Salad Dressing. When we ran out of our favorite Vegan Caesar salad dressing, a quick Google search found us a recipe that seemed easy, requiring just a few tweaks with ingredients we already had. The result tasted just like Caesar dressing! It’s one of the easiest salad dressings I’ve made and I think a great go-to when you’re craving a Caesar Salad at home.
Vegan Caesar Dressing
adapted from this recipe
2 tbsp. dijon mustard
2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
2 tbsp. almond meal
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp. lemon juice/juice of 1 lemon
1/2 tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1. In a medium bowl, combine the first four ingredients to make a paste.
2. Whisk the remaining ingredients into the paste to create a creamy consistency.
3. Refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to serve.
- We used 2 tbsp. for one serving, but I think the recipe above might actually make 6 tbsp. total. The link to the recipe can adjust the amounts for however much you’d like to make.
- We had nutritional yeast and almond meal leftover from making the Tofu + Mushroom Quiches, but both items are readily available at Whole Foods. Almond meal can always be made by chopping unsalted almonds finely, by hand or food processor.
