Cashew Cream Caesar


Ever since I discovered cashew cream, I’ve had a good Caesar salad on my mind.

The day has come!


Cashew Cream Caesar Dressing


    1/2 cup raw cashews
    1/2 cup water
    10 cloves garlic, peeled
    3 anchovies
    1 Tbls lemon juice
    1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
    1/3 cup shredded parmesan


In food processor, puree cashews and water until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary.

Add the garlic, anchovies, lemon, and pepper and puree for two minutes.

Just prior to serving, add parmesan and puree one more minute.

Serving recommendation: toss in romaine lettuce with croutons and top with grilled chicken breast.

Serving Size: makes 4 3-tablespoon servings
Number of Servings: 4


Warning! This dressing will put hair on your chest! And you will be burping up garlic for three days. But it’s amazing. I want to make it every week. Just. Like. This. Tossed in romaine and topped with chicken.
