I taught a class yesterday on dehydrating and one of the recipes was for dehydrated almond croutons. We decided to serve them on top of a caesar salad...only problem was that we didn't have all of the ingredients for the dressing. I knew I had one filed away somewhere and sure enough, I was able to improvise and come up with this. Some people like a very lemony caesar dressing so feel free to add more lemon to this if you would like (my husband informed me that he thinks it could use more lemon and of course I disagree, ha!) I served mine over this amazing heirloom mix of salad greens. It would be great tossed with Romaine lettuce or used as a dip with cut up vegetables for kids. Hope you enjoy!
Easy Caesar Dressing
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup olive oil
2 ribs celery chopped
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons wheat free tamari
2 tablespoons chickpea or mellow white miso
2 teaspoons honey or other sweetener of choice
1 tablespoon dulse flakes
1 garlic clove (minced if you don't have a high speed blender)
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
Blend all ingredients until smooth (preferably in a Vitamix or high speed blender) and serve on chopped Romaine or any available salad greens.
