Caesar Dressing

Prep: 15 minutes

Serves:Makes 3/4 cup

This is my favorite Caesar salad dressing. I usually prepare this for family gatherings because my whole family, including the grandchildren, love it.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp almond meal (see hints below)
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed through a garlic press
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp water

Directions

In a medium bowl, combine the almond meal, garlic, mustard, and nutritional yeast to make a paste. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Transfer to a covered jar and shake several times before using to mix well.

Hints: Almond meal can be purchased in bags at Trader Joe's or from Bob's Red Mill, or you can make your own by grinding blanched or roasted almonds in a food processor until very finely ground. I usually make the dressing at least several hours before I plan to toss it into the salad and I shake the jar often during the day to make sure the ingredients are well blended. Any extra dressing will keep for at least a week in the refrigerator.
