The creamiest plant-based Caesar dressing
Last time I did the Whole30 I had a fairly constant craving for salads. BUT they are only satisfying if I keep them interesting. I do my best to keep them interesting by changing up the toppings and homemade dressings.
I make lots of homemade dressings, but this Healthy Caesar dressing is definitely a favorite. It is creamy and tangy and keeps you wanting more. It is made with simple ingredients yet the flavor is complex and interesting.
