Caesar dressing with no eggs or dairy
This vegan Caesar salad dressing can be whipped up in a bowl or a small blender in just 5 minutes and is super creamy.
The secret to the creaminess of this dressing is Tahini. The tahini blends up nice and smoothly for a really rich tasting dressing with no eggs or dairy. If you don’t like tahini, you can also use some cashew butter in this recipe instead.
Why you’ll love this recipe
- This dressing takes 5 minutes to make and can be made directly in a mason jar, in a bowl or in a small blender (like a magic bullet.)
- This recipe will last 2 weeks in the fridge. (unlike a traditional Caesar dressing)
- It’s not only good on Caesar salad, but great on all salads, in wraps and on bowls.
Ingredients you’ll need for this dressing
- Olive oil: This makes the base of the dressing. Use high-quality olive oil for a better taste.
- Lemon juice: This is the acidic element in the dressing. Make sure to use freshly squeezed lemons!
- Tahini: The creamy element of the dressing. The runny kind of Tahini works best (can usually be found in the ethnic section of the grocery store)
- Dijon mustard: Adds great flavour to the dressing.
- Garlic: fresh garlic! What’s a Caesar dressing without it?
- Nutritional Yeast: This gives a “cheesy” flavour to the dressing in place of the parmesan cheese.
- Salt & pepper: to season the dressing
- Water: This dressing has a fair bit of water added to it to help thin it out. You’ll see without it the dressing is quite thick.
How to store this dressing
You can store this green goddess dressing in the fridge sealed in a mason jar or salad jar for up to a week. The dressing will thicken in the fridge since olive oil thickens in colder temperatures, so it’s best to take the dressing out of the fridge 30 minutes before you plan to use it.
