Friday Feeds: Yummylicious Vegan Caesar Dressing!

d5a863_d66bafff1c2044e9b646f0ff7e624548

Caesar Salad is probably one of the most delicious yet misleading salads there is. Full of unneccessary fats and calories, I was on a quest to make my own version. And boy am I glad! I took some inspiration from a bunch of other amazing food bloggers but as always, I measured it to my own taste. You definitely can’t tame me with recipes when I’m in the kitchen πŸ˜‰

The caesar dressing is a little to the salty and sour side so you might want to add some sweetnes to the salad mix itself. Aside from the usual greens, I baked some fresh beets and caramelized my own maple walnuts with real maple and a dash of Himalayan pink salt. This, for me, is the perfect combination for the dressing. But each to its own! So if you have other ideas, do give it a try and let me know on instagram!
