It was one of my favorite meals.
Since becoming vegan, I have tried about a million different vegan Caesar dressing recipes, but nothing ever lived up to my standards.
I gave up for a while, feeling like my hopes and dreams of ever eating another Caesar salad were crushed.
Last week I stumbled upon one more recipe that I hadn't yet tried.
I couldn't believe it when I tasted it - it tasted EXACTLY like traditional Caesar dressing!!
I was so excited for everyone I knew to try it. That night, my boyfriend and I scarfed down a huge, delicious Caesar salad, and we couldn't get enough!
The next night we had Caesar salad again, and invited our friends over for dinner to try it.
It was a huge hit with vegans and non-vegans alike, and this dressing has now become a staple in my fridge. Success!!!
