A tasty Caesar salad dressing is a very good thing to have; luckily it’s a very simple thing to make for yourself at home. I use a high speed blender to make mine, but a food processor or a standard blender should work as well; you need something that you can pour ingredients into while you’re blending, so a Bullet style blender isn’t going to work here.
This Vegan Caesar Salad Dressing is perfect for making a traditonal-style Caesar Salad; top with coconut or soy bacon bits, and some Earth Island Parmesan shreds for a real authentic taste. It also goes amazing with some seitan chicken in a Chick’n Caesar Wrap; use a pita and a panini grill to make it extra awesome.
Quick and easy vegan salad dressing that comes together in 5 minutes; does it get any easier? Probably, but I bet it’s not as delicious. Make sure to let me know what you think of the dressing in the comments below; talk to you soon, friends. 🙂
Vegan Caesar Dressing
- 4 tbsp aquafaba
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp white wine vinegar
- 1 tsp vegan worchestershire sauce
- 2 peeled garlic cloves
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2/3 cup liquid vegetable oil (canola works great)
- 1-2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- fresh ground pepper to taste
Combine aquafaba, lemon juice, white wine vinegar, worchestershire, garlic, dijon mustard, garlic powder, and salt in a small blender jar. Blend on low speed until well combined, about 10-15 seconds.
On the lowest speed with the blender running, pour in the oil in a steady stream, until all oil has been added. Increase the speed to high, and continue to blend for an additional 10-15 seconds more, until the consistency is smooth, and creamy. Take care not to overblend.
Transfer the dressing to an airtight storage container. Stir in the nutritional yeast flakes - I don't like a lot of it in this recipe so I use a tablespoon, but use more if you're a big nooch fan. Add fresh ground pepper to taste - maybe 1/2 a tsp. Serve on top of romaine lettuce, well-massaged kale, or use anywhere you'd use conventional Caesar dressing.
