Plus, it takes only 30 minutes to put together. This simple vegan caesar salad recipe is the perfect lunch on its own and makes a wonderful side for your favorite main dishes!
Okay, here I have to admit I’ve been craving caesar salad for so long that I cannot remember but tought it was so difficult to make a nice dressing. Actually when I first try the salad I was so shocked and suddenly all the memories came back as good as non vegan version of ceasar salad.
The Vegan Caesar Salad Dressing
In my opinion most important part of this salad is a good and creamy dressing. The base of this dressing it’s mayonaise and mustard. Together with lemon juice, capers and other aditives it creates such a beautiful and creamy texture that you want to eat it just on it’s own.
Why I love this salad?
