Finally! A Caesar dressing recipe for vegans!
I love Caesar dressing, but I don’t love the anchovies.
This vegan Caesar dressing recipe is great for vegans and those who are looking to prepare a healthy meal for someone special. In other words, no anchovies and a little bit of garlic leaves the breath in great shape for a little bit of dessert (aka after dinner smooches).
- 2 handfuls of raw cashews
- 1/2 medium size garlic clove
- 1/4 cup of olive oil
- 1/4 cup of water
- 1 table spoon of apple cider vinegar
- 15-20 capers to taste
- salt & pepper to taste
Wash and prepare salad bed and additional toppings.
Use romaine as a bed and if you’re not sure what else you’d like to add (you don’t have to add anything else if you don’ feel like it). Here’s what I added:
- Red peppers
- Green olives
- A sprinkle of salted pumpkin seeds for an added crunch
Blend all dressing ingredients in a blender until smooth. Drizzle over salad bed of romaine and toppings of choice and serve.
And now that you’re kissable, here’s a romantic, foodie inspired poem…
“I crave your mouth, your voice, your hair.
Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets.
Bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day
I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.
I hunger for your sleek laugh,
your hands the color of a savage harvest,
hunger for the pale stones of your fingernails,
I want to eat your skin like a whole almond.
I want to eat the sunbeam flaring in your lovely body,
the sovereign nose of your arrogant face,
I want to eat the fleeting shade of your lashes,
and I pace around hungry, sniffing the twilight,
hunting for you, for your hot heart,
Like a puma in the barrens of Quitratue.”
~ Pablo Neruda
