If you're a huge Caesar salad fan like I am, you may have had trouble finding a plant-based dressing that compared to the creamy, garlicky, dairy-based dressings everyone knows and loves. Over the past 2 years I have tweaked this to be just right. Went vegan and thought you'd never have a tasty Caesar dressing again? You will be pleasantly surprised! Oil-free, totally raw (except the capers), and packed with all the health benefits of cashews! Store in a mason jar in the fridge for up to 7 days.

Cook's Notes:

Use apple cider vinegar for white balsamic vinegar and Himalayan salt for sea salt, if preferred.

If storing in the fridge, it will become thick. Mix in a small amount of water to thin dressing before use.
