Vegan Caesar Dressing {5 minutes}

Vegan Caesar Dressing {5 minutes}

Every holiday dinner you think about your main entree and side dishes. You set out a menu and decide what dishes you want to make. Sometimes the best meals are the simple and quick ones to prepare. I personally think every dinner should have a salad as well.

My all time favorite salads are Caesar salads. Caesar Dressing is classically made with minced anchovies…ewww disgusting! When I found that out I was so grossed out I just couldn’t eat it any longer. I am so happy since transitioning to a vegan lifestyle because I have learned what foods can be substituted so I can still eat all of those meals I always enjoyed eating before being a vegan.

I knew there were multiple ways to make vegan Caesar Dressing. I also knew there must be a way to make it using classic Hummus as the base. So I happened to google it and came across a quick five minute recipe. The author of the recipe actually runs one of my favorite blogs for plant based recipes. The minimalist baker! Her recipes are usually 10 ingredients or less and pretty quick and simple instructions. This recipe is adapted from  {MinimalistBaker.com}.


{Please excuse this writing, my 2yr old got a hold of this jar with his wet hands and deleted all my other pics from the process of making this dressing}
