This Vegan Ceasar Salad Dressing is so fast to make. It uses just a few simple ingredients and comes together in minutes. I love the savory, creaminess and it goes great with these Crispy Tofu Croutons!
This simple recipe uses vegan mayo, vegan Worchestershire sauce, and vegan fish sauce to get a delicious, authentic taste.
Alternatives make this Vegan Ceasar Salad Dressing Delicious
This recipe rocks and tastes pretty authentic thanks to some delicious vegan alternatives that are available. I’ll put a recommended products list at the bottom of this post in case you need to find some of these ingredients. I found most at my local grocery.
Vegan Fish Sauce
One of the main flavors and least vegan ingredients in Ceasar Salad Dressing is anchovies. Here we’ve created a “fishy” taste without any actual fish. The fish sauce starts adding layers of umami flavor. I use this Vegan Fish Sauce from Halo.
Miso adds another layer and contributes to the umami needed here. I use this White Miso I already had in the fridge.
Dulse Flakes or Nori
In combination with miso, Dulse Flakes add a fishy, oceany taste as does Nori.
Vegan Worchestershire Sauce
Want to know what’s harder than pronouncing Worchestershire sauce? Finding a vegan version. But this Vegan Worchestershire Sauce from Annies Homegrown is excellent.
I use Hellman’s Vegan Mayonnaise. My personal favorite is Just Mayo but that is no longer available, at least not right now, as far as I can see.
Serve this dressing over a green salad with whatever added vegetables you enjoy. I added olive, carrots, and avocado. And of course, the Crispy Tofu Croutons.
