Author Notes: A delicious alternative to the typical caesar dressing, this creamy substitute is savory and perfect for any salad. I suggest using this dressing over a kale salad with additional veggies of your choice, and adding crushed cashews, crispy chickpeas or crushed up pita chips as “croutons” to the salad! —Through The Kitchen
Makes: 5 servings
Prep time: 15 min
cup raw cashews, soaked
teaspoon dijon mustard
tablespoon olive oil
tablespoon nutritional yeast
teaspoons garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
- Place cashews in a pot with water to cover, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, let the cashews simmer for at least 10 minutes to soften.
- Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender, adjusting garlic powder, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper to taste. The amounts listed above are what I used
- I used this dressing over lacinato kale and chopped heriloom tomatoes. I also added vegan parmesan cheese (recipe: https://minimalistbaker.com/how-to-make-vegan-parmesan-cheese/).
- This dressing can be refrigerated for up to a week! You may need to add water as it thickens in the refrigerator.
