Romaine lettuce: Traditionally, a Caesar salad is made with crispy romaine lettuce. You can switch it up if you want!
Vegan Caesar dressing: I love this super creamy vegan Caesar dressing recipe. It has all the classic Caesar salad flavor with none of the anchovies.
Croutons: Vegan croutons are so hard to find! You can make croutons at home with old bread, but you can make the best croutons out of tofu! They are perfectly crunchy with plenty of protein, too. Pro tip: For the crispiest tofu croutons, be sure to use a tofu press!
Vegan Parmesan cheese: If you have not made vegan Parm yet, you are in for a treat! It only takes a few minutes, and you can sprinkle it on anything.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH VEGAN CAESAR SALAD
The tofu croutons really make this simple Caesar salad a whole meal. However, I often have a sweet tooth when I am done with dinner. Save room for these super easy and totally chewy sweet potato brownies! They are gluten-free and have none of the sweet potato taste.
WHAT IS IN VEGAN CAESAR SALAD DRESSING?
There are a lot of ways to make vegan Caesar dressing. Some people use vegan mayo or other dairy replacements, but I keep it simple.
For this vegan Caesar dressing recipe, I use soaked cashews and water for the creamy base. I add lemon juice, wholegrain mustard garlic powder, and soy sauce for that perfect tangy taste, too.
Toss it all in a blender, and you will never buy salad dressing again!
HOW TO SERVE VEGAN CAESAR SALAD
To make the best vegan Caesar salad, toss all your dry ingredients together, including garnishes, first. Then, add a little dressing, and toss. Keep adding vegan Caesar dressing until you are satisfied with the coverage.
I always add a little salt and pepper to my salads, too. It adds so much additional flavor on top!
When it comes to hearty salad recipes, making things ahead of time does not always work. However, you can mix the dry ingredients together ahead of time! When it is time to eat, just toss them in dressing and serve.
Do not try to store leftovers with vegan Caesar dressing on them. The salad unfortunately will wilt very fast.
