Homemade Ceasar Salad Dressing (Dairy Free)

February 21, 2018

Whether you follow a dairy-free diet, are enjoying eating more plant-based, or just enjoy trying new homemade recipes, I think you are going to love this vegan spin on traditional ceasar salad dressing!

 

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup raw cashews (soaked for 4 hours and drained, if desired)

  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds

  • 1 cup cashew milk

  • 3 cloves garlic 

  • 5 kalamata olives

  • juice from 1 whole lemon 

  • 2 tsp dijon mustard

  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  • Soak cashews for 4 hours and then rinse. This makes them easier for blending for the final dressing.

  • After cashews are soaked and rinsed, combine all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend for several seconds-minutes until it turns into a creamy sauce

  • Note: you may add a few tablespoons of water while blending to reach the consistency you desire.

  • When ready to serve, chop romaine lettuce and add it to a large bowl with as much dressing as you'd like.

  • Add remaining ingredients such as gluten free croutons, bacon bits, tomatoes, and onions.

  • I added grilled chicken on top of mine and it was delicious!

  • Serve and enjoy!

Notes: soaking the cashews increases their digestibility, which helps to relieve digestive disress, and also makes for a creamier, preferred texture.
