Donna's Salad with Caesar Dressing



Donna served this salad at our Fall Potluck, accompanied by a winter-squash-enhanced Caesar dressing.


The salad was a mix of radicchio and lettuce with onion, celery, carrot and walnuts.

But really, I just use a mix of whatever I have - so I could have added kale, lettuce, cilantro, parsley, beets, apples, squash, tofu, vegan cheese, tempeh. It can be a total meal!!

Vegan Caesar Dressing:

120 ml 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight (then drain)
59 ml1/4 cup water
30 ml2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
15 ml1 tablespoon lemon juice
7 ml1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 ml1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 small garlic clove (you can add another if you like it super potent)
1/2 TBs vegan Worcestershire sauce (I use Wizard's gluten free)
10 ml2 teaspoons capers (I omitted these)
2 ml1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt and pepper, or to taste

120 ml1/2 c mashed cooked squash (optional) --- Donna's inspiration for our Fall Potluck!

(This recipe also available under Condiments: Vegan Caesar Salad Dressing )


Combine all the dressing ingredients in a blender or processor.

Make your green salad and serve with the dressing.
