Raw Vegan Caesar Salad

18 Jul

Raw Vegan Caesar Salad

Caesar Salad was one of my favorite salads growing up!  I think this raw vegan version is definitely going to be one of my faves from now on!  Raw Tahini is the main ingredient in this dressing and is a wonderful source of calcium, iron, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper and manganese.

The Greens

3 to 4 heads of romaine lettuce, chopped

The Dressing

Puree in a high speed blender:

1 1/2 tsp sea salt

1 small clove garlic

1 date, pitted

1 lemon, juiced

1/2 tbspn unpasteurized white miso

2 tbspns water (more for a runnier dressing, less for a dip)

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/3 cup raw tahini (sesame paste)

To Serve

Mix the lettuce well with the dressing.  Top with Nutritional Yeast for some B12 and flaxseed crackers for croutons!
