Vegan Caesar salad with Homemade Dressing
My absolute favorite salad ever. Everyone who knows me, knows that there is nothing I really rather have than a good Caesar salad, One with fresh, crispy romaine hearts, and perfect Caesar dressing.
If you got good lettuce and good dressing, everything else is a bonus! I like to add tomatoes, onions, croutons, parmesan, and sometimes even faux chick'n (a habit left over from my older days), but honestly all you need is the dressing.
I have tried my share of vegan store-bought Caesar dressings and a few different recipes. I have never really felt like it is as good as the original, I used to love. This time is different! This dressing is so so so good.
If you love Caesar, I have got you covered.
Let me know what you think of it once you try!
Romaine lettuce is a low-calorie (only 8 calories in a cup), and nutritious food that contains a number of important vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamins C, K, A, Calcium , and others.
Raw Red onion
Onions are low in calories yet high in nutrients, including vitamin C, B vitamins and potassium. Red onions are also known to have anti-bacterial qualities and has been linked to reduction of risk factor for certain types of cancers. They are also colorful and so so flavorful!
Although the chia seed is so tiny, it is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. The seeds re loaded with fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients. Chia is literally 14% protein, which is crazy!
Whenever I go into the kitchen, whether it is for cooking or baking, I need to have my music with me. I thought it would be nice to share with you the exact song that describes my feeling towards each recipe. That way you can have a similar experience while cooking...
Since it is my favorite salad, and one of my favorite foods ever, I thought I'd match it with one of my favorite songs Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straits
