You won’t taste a more authentic Caesar dressing. This reminds me almost exactly of the creamy Caesar dressing served at Red Lobster.
The secret is in the dulse flakes, which give the secret ‘anchovy’ taste; and in the hempseed, which works perfectly here in place of parmesean. Your tastebudds will feel guilty.
You can choose to use either water or oil. Oil will give a creamier, richer dressing, but water makes it considerably lower in fat.
To make a Salad, toss Romaine or Spinach (I used spinach in the picture above) with the dressing and top with lots of hempseed. If you’re really ambitious, make some hoemmade croutons and toss them in, too.
1 cup cultured Real Cream Cheese (from my recipe page)
1 lemon (juice of)
2 teaspoon dulse flakes
2 tablespoon hempseeds
1 teaspoon dijon mustard (homemade or otherwise)
1½ teaspoon sea salt
1 clove garlic
2 tablespoon onion, minced
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon agave nectar
1 cup either water or oil
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast, optional
hempseed for sprinkling
Whir everything but the last set of hempseeds together in a blender until absolutely smooth. Let sit at least 1/2 hour or overnight for best flavour.
Toss with Romaine or Spinach, the extra hempseed, and hoemmade croutons, if desired.
