This was incredible….I think I could put it on everything! I love how quickly it comes together and I never would have thought to replace the usual soaked nuts with hummus! We wonder if maybe it needed more capers/brine? Thanks so much for the lovely review, Andrea! I used the Cedar’s zesty lemon hummus instead of plain (loved the extra lemony taste), apple cider vinegar in place of the capers (2 tsp) – I just added a bit of extra salt, and dijon mustard because I didn’t have any spicy (just added a pinch of cayenne). I looked at your recipe and thought I would try it. Yummy! Next time, would you mind leaving a rating with your review? It’s super helpful for us and other readers.

The only change I made was that I added monk fruit instead of maple syrup to cut back on sugars. I put it on salads and roasted Brussel sprouts. ;) Thank you for this, definitely going to be a staple at our house! We’re so glad you enjoyed it, Tracy! I also added some nutritional yeast flakes! It is delicious and will be a staple in my fridge from now on! Used roasted garlic that I had and it worked well. Looking for a delicious vegan caesar dressing? It’s so helpful for us and other readers. I discovered this recipe today and made it tonight. So glad you enjoyed it, Maria! Thank you! One suggestion would be adding about 1-1.5 tbsp of tahini for a little more bite to the dressing. Thanks so much for the lovely review! I am still in love with your Cesar dressing from your cookbook but this one is great for when you’re on a time crunch. I almost always have both the hummus and this dressing on hand and I pretty much live off of hummus and veggies and kale Caesar salads! I found this recipe through a Prevention article about dairy-free salad dressing and oh my, is it a game changer. This recipe is absolutely delicious – the only change may be to hold back on the salt until the end. Thanks so much for sharing! THE RECIPE WAS A HIT!!!!! We are new to plant based cooking. And it worked like a charm. Thank you! DELICIOUS! :). Was still amazing! It is even better than non vegan Caesar dressings I’ve had in the past. Just want to say this was a delicious dressing. You made me so hungry now! If you give this recipe a try, let us know! Caesar salad has now spread across the globe and has taken on many modifications. I didn’t find one I liked so I made a mustard vinaigrette. Find out more about me here. Just wondering if there is anything you could substitute the brine juice with. Thank you. Not including capers will affect that flavor but can be done if preferred! Makes it fast and easy and creamy for the super busy. Caesar salads, while seemingly simple and sad to look at, are one of those meals that are so refreshing and delicious. This is definitely my new go to! Question, If I want to make big batch, let’s say 1 cup of hummus, how much garlic should I use? Did not taste “hummus-y” at all. Thank you!! It is not quite as good as the real thing made by my chef husband but it is better than most restaurants. Thanks so much! I added the capers last so the dressing kept some texture. Thank you for this recipe it looks amazing and can’t wait to try it!!! I listened to another reviewer and made a double batch and I am happily eating it for lunch today. I doubled the recipe and it was enough for a dinner party of 6 people. No cashew soaking, grinding, or blending involved. A classic caesar salad with rich & creamy dressing used to be one of my absolute faves. Our FREE 49-Page Fan Favorites e-Book has 20 recipes we think you’ll LOVE! xo, I love this dressing cause it comes together so quickly. Question – I like the flavor of capers, but dislike biting into them – can you see any reason that this couldn’t be thrown into a blender for a quick whirl? It’s super helpful for us and other readers! Can you say winner!!!? It was okay. As a vegan I miss caesar salads so much, and the storebought brands taste off. This is so outstanding! So good! YES it does! We happen to LOVE garlic, but know it’s not for everyone! Yum!! Next time would you mind adding a rating to your review? Growing up, I went through a huge caesar … Thanks for the kind words, Hailey. I kept bobbing more dressing! Thanks!!! I bought minced garlic and put about 2 tablespoons in, added just 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and omitted the maple syrup. Excellent way to use up the extra hummus I had. Yummy! xo. I’ll definitely make it again with a little more lemon and hummus. Yum!! I was a little nervous being the newest vegan of the group, and the fact that the host was the dear woman who taught me how to be a whole-food, healthy vegan – I guess deep-down I wanted her to be proud of her new student. I used follow your heart parm and crunchy chickpeas with sea salt for crunch :). Made this with store bought hummus and green olives instead of capers. People took it home to dilute with their own hummus. xo. Everyone who I made it for has loved it! Thanks so much for the lovely review! I noe have many new favourites that will be in regular rotation even when I can eat my normal” foods again. Thank you for coming up with this! About Me →, This post may contain affiliate links. Capers! Love it!!! I would like to make a chipotle version. Thanks Dana! Your email address will not be published. I’ve made a cashew-based vegan Caesar dressing before and it was delicious. And this looks so amazing! I LOVE capers so I knew I had to make this. Every single one I’ve tried has been delicious and this one is no exception. Or you could try this dressing which makes a larger batch: https://minimalistbaker.com/grilled-romaine-caesar-salad-with-herbed-white-beans/. I LOVED caesar dressing – but whenever I tried to make it it just didn’t work that well (I tried adapting a vegan mayo but the lemon made it separate and… yuck). Thanks so much! It’s perfect. There’s still lots of flavor in there, which is always good for a salad dressings! Also very good unfortunately NOT vegan. You never cease to amaze me! I liked this recipe! Love your recipes Dana! Never thought about using hummus as a base,but it sound tasty and garlicky is right down my alley.
