Caesar salads have always been a favorite of mine, but pretty much became a weekly staple when I first started dating my now husband. He wasn’t a huge salad person when we first met, although that’s definitely changed now, but he always loved a Caesar salad, and he’s definitely a fan of this delicious vegan Caesar salad.
It’s light and refreshing, and perfect for a hot summer day. The dressing is made from raw cashews, which I love using as the base for any non-dairy cream or cheese recipe- like these vegan cheese fries and creamy pasta sauce recipes.
I love to pair this salad with my homemade croutons. All I do is pan-fry my favorite whole-grain sliced bread with some olive oil and spices, and you have a delicious, crispy topping with a little extra fiber!
Vegan Caesar dressing ingredients:
- raw cashews
- lemon juice
- olive oil
- Worcestershire sauce– make sure yours is vegan! most brands have anchovies
- nutritional yeast
- dijon mustard
This dressing stays fresh in the fridge for up to a week, so you can make it ahead of time! It would also taste great in a wrap, over a grilled piece of salmon, or in a pasta dish.
This vegan Caesar salad easily became one of our favorite salad recipes. Since we keep a kosher household, we don’t eat dairy and meat together, so I’m able to pair this with grilled chicken for my husband without compromising flavor!
