VEGAN Caesar Salad Dressing

·

My Vegan Caesar Salad Dressing is creamy, rich deliciousness!

As a child, my two favorite salad dressings were caesar and greek. As I grew older, I became more conscious about what ingredients were in those salad dressings and decided to just cut them out of diet. That's why I decided it was time to conquer the Caesar salad dressing with healthy ingredients that don't limit you to only one serving!

Until today, I have not had a Caesar salad for such a long time! But man, oh man. This may be the best Caesar salad dressing I have ever had! It is ultra creamy and rich and straight up deliciousness!

I paired it with some crunchy chickpeas that are falafel seasoned as a substitute for your traditional croutons (I bought them at Whole Foods). Last but definitely not least, I had to add my parmesan cheese shavings to top it all off. Along with a dash of pepper!

Just the looks alone of this salad make me hungry for more! The crunchiness of the chickpeas paired with the softness of the romaine lettuce and creaminess of the cashew-based Caesar salad dressing and saltiness of the parmesan cheese... YUM!!!

The ticket to making the perfect Caesar salad dressing is to make sure you use a food processor that is sure to blend all ingredients together smoothly and finely. Although it will still taste good if your blender doesn't blend it completely, I truly recommend getting the salad dressing texture as close to a smooth, milky texture as possible!!
