Vegan Caesar Dressing Recipe – How to Make Vegan Caesar Dressing


Mike Garten

No anchovies here! This vegan caesar dressing gets its umami flavor from entirely plant-based ingredients. But don’t worry, just because it’s a vegan recipe doesn’t mean it can’t be just as creamy, garlicky and zesty as the classic. Olive oil and tahini give this healthy salad topper its richness and body, while fresh garlic and lemon give it spice, tang and mouth watering acidity. It’s a must for a vegan caesar salad or any vegetable that needs a little lift. Plus—it only takes 5 minutes to make.

How to make vegan caesar dressing

Traditional caesar dressing is made with anchovies, garlic, egg yolk, lemon, Dijon mustard, vegetable oil and Parmesan. Anchovies and Parmesan bring saltiness and depth of flavor, while egg yolk and vegetable oil make it rich and creamy. In order to replicate the punchy, but not plant-based, flavors of the original, we swapped out the Parmesan for nutritional yeast (which tastes like cheese!) and the egg yolk and vegetable oil for creamy tahini and olive oil.

Once you’ve got your ingredients, it’s easy to make: Simply blend everything together in a mini food processor or whisk by hand if you don’t have a food processor. Drizzle the dressing generously over your favorite greens and dig in.
