Vegan Caesar Dressing

Vegan Caesar Dressing
The Caesar dressing is inside a glass fermenting jar on a wooden table.

Finding a few salad dressings you really love can really change things for you (yeah, I did just say that and it’s not a joke), because no matter how quick and simple the salad is, you know it’s going to be a satisfying meal with a great dressing.

This creamy vegan caesar dressing recipe is a keeper for just that reason.

This will be good for up to 4 days in the fridge, and is just as good as a caesar dip, as it a dressing.

It’s great on simple salads like the one in the pic, which is romaine leaves, olives, tomatoes, onions, avocado and pumpkin seeds. It’s also really amazing over some kale leaves, wilted with lemon juice and salt.

Suggested: Vegan Kale Caesar Salad

By using a little less water when blending you can also make this a spread for sandwiches and wraps, which would be an absolute delight.

The recipe and therefore the nutrition figures here are just for the dressing, not the salad too.  So those macros are for 1/8th of the full recipe.
