PPK / Veganomicon Caesar Salad Dressing

Submitted by: APPIFANIE

Introduction

Just the recipe for the dressing. I left out the almonds b/c I don't think they're essential (I usually use them, but naa for now). I don't know the nutritional info for the 1/2tsp dry mustard powder and there wasn't info for caper brine so I upped the calculations to account for 2 tbsp capers.

Also, I accidentally left the 1/4c olive oil out, but I tried it without, and I think it was pretty good! So add it if you want.

    My family has really been missing those Caesar salads from Costco since we became vegan. But no more! This salad dressing is excellent! - 8/12/09

  • I've made this per the recipe. I loved it, rest of the family found it too creamy. This makes more dressing that you might expect, and so if you just use a tablespoon on a serving of salad the calories you're getting is not much. (I used panko crumbs instead of croutons on the salad, was yum!) - 7/10/12
