Everyone loves a good Caesar salad. Here is one with a simple twist perfect for entertaining. Break out the tequila!


Ingredients

4 anchovies

1 clove of garlic, roughly chopped

2 egg yolks

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

3 Tbsp freshly ground Parmesan cheese

2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice

Splash, about 1 Tbsp, of tequila, or to taste

½ cup approximately neutral-flavored oil (like grapeseed or vegetable oil)

Salt and pepper to taste


Method

Place all ingredients except oil, salt, and pepper into a blender or food processor. Pulse a few times to break up ingredients. With blender or processor on, drizzle in oil to create a nice emulsified creamy dressing, adding more oil if needed to adjust consistency. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt, pepper, more lime juice, or tequila!

Tizz's Tips You can serve this as a dip or a dressing by adjusting the amount of oil you add. Less oil will make a thicker dip for a veggie or charcuterie plate, more oil will create a looser dressing.

Super Creamy Oil-Free Vegan Dressing

Author: Christine Tizzard

Prep time:  5 mins

Total time:  5 mins

Yes, you can have a super creamy dressing or dip without adding ANY oil, eggs, cheese, and cream.

Ingredients

⅓ cup water

½ cup hemp seeds

1 clove garlic, roughly chopped

2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar (with the mother)

2 Tbsp nutritional yeast

Salt and pepper to taste

2 Tbsp freshly chopped oregano


Method In a blender or food processor add all ingredients except chopped oregano. Pulse or process until you have a nice thick creamy dressing. Add more water if necessary. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Transfer to a bowl and stir in oregano.


Tizz's Tips What is nutritional yeast you ask? This amazing dairy-free cheese alternative was introduced to me by my vegan friends. They love it because of its high vitamin B content. It looks like larger flaked grated Parmesan and has the slightly salty, nutty and melty quality of Parmesan. My kids love it so I can easily swap it for cheese in certain recipes. It also lasts longer than freshly grated Parmesan and is cheaper. Try it sprinkled on popcorn.
