Here’s a delicious vegan Caesar salad recipe with a dressing you can make from scratch with healthy vital ingredients. Making a salad dressing taste great is one step. There’s lots to choose from on the shelves at the grocery store. But beware! Not all salad dressing is made with your health in mind. Many of the ingredients, especially the oils used, are not the best for you. If you take a little extra time to make your salad dressings, you are putting that little extra effort into your health and wellness. It makes a big difference over time!

Do it yourself

Making a salad dressing taste great and be healthy for you is a winner! This delicious vegan Caesar salad dressing does just that. Once you start cooking more at home and creating your own recipes and dressings, you will find you will have most of the ingredients on hand. In the beginning, you may need to buy everything. Soon enough, you will have a pantry and fridge of ingredients ready for your culinary artwork.

Preparation Tips

If you want the added benefits from fresh citrus, this citrus juicer is awesome! It squeezes out more juice than you can by hand. We use it almost daily in our home. Love it!


Blenders are equally important in daily kitchen life. We use our Vitamix regularly. However for this job, the Magic Bullet is a handly tool perfect for salad dressing blending.

Recipe

Blend the follow items until thick and creamy. Add water by the teaspoon if mixture becomes too thick to blend. Put the dressing aside to marinate.

Blend

  • 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp liquid aminos
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tsp miso paste
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice – about 2 squeezed lemons
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp crack pepper

Toast

Toast 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds. Toast either plain or toss in a tiny bit of olive oil to bring out the toasted flavor. Place on a tray in the oven or a toaster oven. Toast or broil for only a few minutes. Pumpkin seeds will brown quickly. Keep a close watch on them. Transfer toasted pumpkin seeds to a plate to cool.

Chop and Toss

Chop 4-5 large romaine leaves and a few handfuls of baby spinach and kale mix. Grate 1/3 of a cucumber. Chop 3-4 stalks and leaves of cilantro. Toss the salad ingredients until well mixed. Start adding the vegan Caesar dressing by the spoonful and toss until salad mixture is well covered in dressing. Again, if the dressing is too thick, just add a teaspoon of water at a time to smooth it out.

Additions

This salad recipe provides either two large salads or four small side salads. This delicious vegan Caesar salad dressing however will probably give you enough dressing for another salad. Consider adding 1/2-1 cup of cooked quinoa if you are interested in making a meal of the salad. Grate in a carrot for a splash of color.

Happy and healthy eating!
