This vegan caesar dressing recipe with cashews has been my favorite creamy salad dressing. It is gluten-free, healthy, easy to make, creamy, and vegan!
I love to make a vegan Caesar salad with it by serving it over some fresh romaine lettuce topped with cherry tomatoes and vegan bacon bits. So yummy!
Adding in a little bit of tasty cheddar or vegan cheese to make a vegetarian Caesar salad is the best.
You can also serve the vegan cashew Caesar dressing with chopped vegetables such as carrots, celery, red pepper, and cucumber for a healthy snack.
This cashew vegan Caesar dressing is made with whole food ingredients blended into an ultra-creamy salad dressing that is oil-free.
The main ingredients in this easy vegan Caesar dressing are cashews, lemon, capers, nutritional yeast, garlic, dijon mustard, and Worchester sauce.
Season the dressing with additional salt and pepper to taste. This vegan Caesar dressing recipe has a mild hint of garlic. I only added in ½ a clove of garlic to not overwhelm the taste buds with raw garlic.
But if you are a garlic lover and want to add more of a garlic kick to the cashew Caesar dressing, then, by all means, add in a clove or two of garlic.
The nutritional yeast adds a cheesy flavor that pairs perfectly with the dijon mustard and capers to season the homemade vegan Caesar dressing.
