Raw Vegan Ceasar Salad

002 (500x333)

Wash and chop fresh organic romaine lettuce leaves into a large salad bowl.  Pour a generous amount of dressing over the lettuce in the bowl.  Toss vigorously!  Then, to serve, add whatever salad vegetables you would like to the top--avocado, tomato, fresh corn cut off the cob, shaved fennel (as is in the picture) and/or sprouts.  Enjoy the succulent texture and flavor of this delicious salad!  I sure did!!! Yum!!! 

Raw, Vegan Caesar Salad Dressing (makes about 1 1/4 cups)
1/2 c cashews
1/4 c hemp (if you can’t afford or don’t have hemp seeds, all cashews is fine, too)
1/4 c nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp salt
2 lemons juice
black pepper
3 pitted dates
1 tsp kelp granules (optional, but good for recreating the anchovy taste)
3/4 c water
2 large stalks celery
Blend all ingredients together in a high speed blender, or, if you haven’t got one, soak the nuts first and put it all in a regular blender. Serve over romaine lettuce and any other veggies you like. I, for one, kicked up traditional Caesar (which is basically romaine, and nothing more) with some cherry tomatoes, fennel, avocado, and celery. It rocked my world:
