Raw Vegan Caesar Salad Dressing

I feel like it’s been forever since I posted a recipe. In fact, it nearly has been. There has been so much going on this spring and summer I’ve barely been able to blog at all.

Recently, I was toying around in the kitchen and decided to make a vegan/raw kale caesar. Here’s what I came up with.

Equipment:

– Knife
– Cutting board
– Food processor – or hand blender
– Bowl for soaking  – Optional
– Citrus juicer – Optional

Ingredients:

– 6 cloves garlic
– Juice of 3 large lemons or equivalent of 1/4 cup of lemon juice minimum
– 1.5 cups macadamia nuts *soaked for 1-2 hours
– 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
– 1 tsp himalayan salt
– 2 tsp namashoyu / tamari
– 5 large dates (medjool) or 8-10 small dates – if you like a sweeter dressing
– 6-12 fresh basil leaves
– 1 tsp dulse flakes – opt
– 1/2 tsp cracked pepper

Method:

Add all ingredients to blending machine of your choice, process until smooth. Add water if too chunky. Do not over process without adding liquid as macadamia nuts can turn into a cheese/boursin type substance.
