Another Vegan Caesar

Not sure if the world needs another vegan caesar dressing, but here it is. It’s lusciously creamy, salty, earthy, garlicky, and bright from lemon. I love pairing this dressing with romaine and crunchy vegetables, in this case celery and radish. Elevate your salad with homemade crispy breadcrumbs!

This recipe makes about 1 cup of dressing so be sure to store leftovers in the fridge.
