One of my all time favourite! I can just eat a huge bowl to myself as a meal, and sometimes I add massaged kale and/or boiled potatoes to it.
Best Caesar Salad
Prep Time: 30 mins
Yields: 3-4 servings
3/4 cup raw and unsalted cashews, preferably soaked for 4-6 hours (especially if you don't have a standard vitamix).
2 large garlic cloves, crushed.
3 Tbsp lemon juice.
1 Tbsp dijon mustard.
1 Tbsp olive oil.
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast.
1/4 tsp salt.
1/3 cup water.
1 Tbsp capers.
1-2 heads of romaine lettuce, chopped.
In a high-speed blender, combine all ingredients except capers. Blend until smooth.
Add in your capers and mix by hand with your spatula.
Grab a piece of lettuce and dip in your dressing to taste. Add lemon or salt if needed. I sometimes add a little bit of the vinegar from capers for a little more intensity.
Mix in with romaine lettuce (it works best with your hands) and serve with croutons, nutritional yeast and a slice of lemon. Enjoy!
Keep in mind..
I like my caesar really garlicky, creamy, and intense in flavour. For a milder flavour, simply reduce the amount of garlic and dijon mustard.
Also, depending on the kind of blender you have (the standard Vita-Mix is ideal), you may need to add a little water for a smoother texture.
