Recipe: Raw Caesar Salad Dressing

Here's another raw vegan favourite of ours.  It has lots of flavour without egg or dairy.  And it's raw and simple to make - throw all the ingredients in the food processor and blend until smooth.  You don't even have to soak the cashews first (although you can if you want a creamier consistency).  The salty and fishiness comes from kelp granules.  You can find them in a heath food store (I found mine at Famous Foods on Kingsway in Vancouver) or at Whole Foods.  The dressing lasts in the fridge for a couple days, just add some water and stir (the cashews will soak up the liquid when it sits in the fridge).

Combine all ingredients in a food processor.

Puree until smooth and well combined.

Toss with chopped romaine (or other green, I have also used kale), and enjoy!
