Do you want a whole foods plant based oil-free Caesar salad dressing? Do you want a dressing that’s rich and creamy and has all the Unami flavours that make Caesar dressing delicious? Yes please!
Traditional Caesar dressing contains animal-based products such as eggs, Worcestershire sauce, parmesan cheese and anchovies. It also usually contains a lot of processed oil.
This oil-free Caesar salad dressing uses only whole foods. It utilizes rich plant based foods such miso paste, tamari and dulse to create a similar flavour to the original version. The combination of cashews and hemp seeds provides a good balance of healthy fats from whole sources. Cashews and hemp seeds are whole foods and, therefore, include vitamins, minerals and fibre that have been stripped out of oil.
If you want to try another salad, this Kale and Avocado Salad with Creamy Tahini Dressing will not disappoint. Likewise, this Loaded Greek Quinoa Salad is a refreshing salad that includes loads of protein. If you try out the Oil Free Caesar Salad Dressing, let us know how you liked it.

- 2 garlic cloves, large
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp dijon mustard
- 2 tbsp capers in brine
- 1 tbsp white miso
- 1 tsp tamari
- 1 tsp dulse flakes
- 1/4 cup hemp seeds
- 1/4 cup cashews
- 1/3 cup water
- Soak cashews in water for 2 hours; drain and rinse. Soaking the cashews will make the dressing creamier as well as make the cashews more digestible.
- Add all ingredients to a high speed blender. Process until creamy. If the dressing is too thick, add some more water a tablespoon at a time until the right consistency is reached.
- Dressing can be stored in a sealed jar in the refrigerator for up to a week.
