Nutritarian Caesar Dressing
This creative combination of ingredients results in a very tasty and healthful Caesar-inspired dressing.
1/2 cup raw cashews
6 ounces firm silken tofu
3 large cloves garlic, or to taste
2 medium celery stalks, chopped
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon white miso
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 pitted medjool dates or 4 deglet noor dates
1 teaspoon kelp granules
freshly ground pepper, to taste
Combine all ingredients in a high-powered blender and process until the mixture is the consistency of conventional Caesar dressing, adding more water or some non-dairy milk if needed to adjust consistency. Taste and adjust seasonings and refrigerate until ready to use.
Makes about 2 1/2 cups.
