Classic Vegan Caesar Salads (Nut-Free)

Classic Vegan Caesar Salads



Yield 2 cups

The BEST vegan caesar dressing, made nut-free & oil-free!


Caesar Dressing:

To assemble:


  1. Measure and blend together dressing ingredients until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.

  2. Wash romaine lettuce hearts and pat dry. Thinly slice into small strips.

  3. Pour over dressing and toss to evenly distribute. I like to use tongs to make this easier.

  4. Top with sunflower seed parmesan and croutons. Lightly toss again.

  5. Serve with extra dressing and toppings if desired and fresh black pepper on top, enjoy.


Dressing will keep for up to 7 days in an airtight container. 


If you don’t want to measure the lemon juice, it’s about the amount of juice from one medium sized lemon. Also, if you don’t have mustard powder you can replace the vinegar and mustard powder for 2 tsp of dijon mustard. If you're unable to get ahold of miso paste you can substitute with nutritional yeast.
