Caesar Dressing Recipe (Vegan)

Caesar Dressing Recipe (Vegan)
Give me allll the Caesar salads. I love them! I love the tangy tart creamy dressing. I love the crunch of the romaine. This Caesar dressing is even more special because it’s made without dairy.  Just give it a go, you’ll see!


  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 1 tablespoon caper brine
  • 1 tablespoon powdered mustard
  • 1/3 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/3 cup raw cashews or slivered almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Water to thin, about 1/2 cup


In a food processor or blender combine all the ingredients except the olive oil and water, blend until smooth.

Slowly drizzle in the olive oil until the dressing is blended and creamy. Drizzle in water as needed to thin to desired consistency.

Spoon into a bowl and refrigerate for 40 minutes to allow flavors to come together. Place back in the food processor and reprocess, adding up to a 1/4 cup of water if necessary until desired consistency.

Spoon over your salad and enjoy.

Pro Tip: leftover dressing is actually amazing when used as a dip after it firms up in the fridge.
