VEGAN CAESAR SALAD DRESSING


Vegan Month of Food 2013

Welcome back to Vegan MoFo! In case you missed any of my earlier posts, you can check them out here:

Today is What-a-Salad Wednesday and I’m here with a vegan Caesar salad dressing recipe! My BFF Hannah made a Caesar dressing last week that was good but she’s wasn’t really impressed with so I set out to try and make my own version.

Vegan Caesar Salad Dressing – 300 calories

  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 2 tbsp + 1 tsp tahini
  • 1/2 a zucchini
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1-2 tsp whole grain mustard
  • 1 tsp capers
  • 1 tsp vegan Worcestershire sauce (the non-vegan kind is made with anchovies)
  • juice from 1/2 a lemon

Add all ingredients to a blender and give it a go! I would start with 1 tsp of mustard first and see how you like it and add the other if you want to. Add salt and pepper as desired.

I know that typical Caesar salads don’t have carrots on them, but I never claimed for this to be a salad recipe, just a dressing recipe. My kitchen scale is out of batteries right now so I’m not really sure how many greens are here, but I aimed for 10 ounces of romaine and spring mix, plus two shredded carrots and the entire dressing recipe.

I thought this dressing was delicious and I didn’t even struggle to finish this giant salad. If you make it please tell me what you think, if you think it’s missing something — besides giant delicious croutons!

Side note for you guys: I am incredibly excited that winter is on it’s way (even though fall hasn’t even hit here in Austin yet) EXCEPT that it’s getting darker earlier and earlier and I’m having to race against the daylight to get my dinners cooked and some pictures taken. My poor cat didn’t get her dinner last night until I had this salad made and photographed since it was already cloudy out and starting to get dark when I got home from the gym. She was not very understanding.
