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!

Makes: 5 servings
Prep time: 15 min

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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/).
  4. This dressing can be refrigerated for up to a week! You may need to add water as it thickens in the refrigerator.
