caesar salad with homemade croutons and dressing

This vegan caesar dressing is so easy and creamy! We tend to get caesar salad cravings from time to time. Once we thought about it, we realize caesar dressing is pretty much just a creamy base with garlic, some citrus and a few other flavours. Then it was time to veganize it! We made this delicious dressing and couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. It is so much healthier than traditional caesar dressing and still hits all the same notes on your palette. We made ours in a high powered blender but any blender should do the trick! This dressing would also be amazing in wraps or on sandwiches. We hope you love it as much as we did! If you recreate it be sure to tag us @plantbasedrelationship on socials!

We also made our own homemade croutons using a baguette! It makes it even more delicious in our opinion and definitely recommend trying to make your own. Salads often bore us and aren’t something we make a lot. This one however isn’t boring and makes us love salad again! We also just really love creating our own sauces like this vegan caesar dressing. There are so many ingredients and additives in store-bought sauces. If you’re looking for some other healthy, vegan sauce recipes, check out more of ours here!
