The moment I went vegan I immediately began a seemingly never-ending search for vegan salad recipes. Hard to believe, right? I know, I know, who loves salad that much? THIS GIRL. 🙂 Read more about my salad addiction here.
So, here we are, with a vegan version of my favorite salad – Caesar!
Before going vegan caesar salad was my go-to everyday for lunch. After a long and thorough search for caesar-like vegan salad recipes I am now delighted to be posting this. It’s absolutely phenomenal.
Side note, I never loved Kale, but mix it with this dressing and I can eat a whole bag. Yep, you read that right! The salad addiction is real, friends. Anyways, I’ve tested it with the taste-testers and my folks and everyone agrees. Minus my very picky father, who “didn’t like the dijon taste” but still ate it for lunch (read, inhaled) with me 3 days in a row while we designed Vegan T Shirts. Go figure! Lol.
There is no doubt in my mind that you will LOVE this vegan salad!
Oh, and definitely pair it with Sweet Potato Fries!
They taste phenomenal dipped in this dressing. Seriously, it’ll blow your taste buds away.
