Homemade Vegan Caesar Dressing

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
serves 6

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.

Some notes

  • 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.

    this looks great!! what is almond meal? Is something I’d buy in the bulk section of Whole Foods? Or is it something you make yourself from whole almonds? Thanks!

      Hi – Almond meal is finely ground unsalted almonds. I’ve found it at Whole Foods in the baking section, and sometimes at other markets for a couple dollars cheaper. You can also grind up unsalted whole almonds in the food processor, to a almost flour-like consistency. Thanks for reading the blog!
