  • Vegan Caesar Dressing:
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 ripe avocado
  • 1 teaspoon drained capers (or 12 anchovy fillet if you aren’t vegetarian)
  • 1/41/2 cup water
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Fresh black pepper
  • Salad:
  • 1 head Romaine lettuce
  • 2 cups croutons
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan, if you like (not vegan, obviously)


  1. Make the dressing (allow several hours or make the day before): Soak cashews in about a cup of water for at least 4 hours and up to 12. Drain.
  2. Combine dressing ingredients in a blender jar or food processor. Drain the cashews before adding and discard the soaking liquid. Add 1/4 cup water and blend. Add more water if necessary to get a pourable consistency.
  3. Wash and tear Romaine. Refrigerate until cold and crisp.
  4. Toss with about 1/4 cup of dressing and garnish with croutons or Parmesan.
