I’ve been experimenting with a lot vegan/vegetarian recipes lately. As many of you know, it’s my goal to make my food items taste just like (or close to) what I was used to and I think I hit it with this dressing.

I love Caesar Salads and this dressing reminds me of a dressing that I loved at Outbacks Restaurant. It’s been so long since I’ve been there . . . . sigh (because of transportation issues)!!!! I kept wondering while I was tasting my creation if the dressing they used was vegan or vegetarian.

Anyhoo, I created something that I like and I’m going from there.


1 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup tahini (try not to use more – the tahini may be overpowering)
1/2 cup oil
2 teaspoons freshly grated garlic
2 tbsps. nutritional yeast flakes (more if extra is needed)
2 tbsps. whole grain Dijon mustard
Juice of one lemon
Water for thinning
TT onion powder
TT salt
TT black OR white pepper


Mix all ingredients together in your Vitamix and blend until smooth. Touch up any seasonings or ingredients to your taste. Chill. Serve with your wonderful salad.
