Vegan Caeser Salad

For years, Caesar salad was my #1 choice in a meal whenever I went out. After going Vegan, and my Caesar cravings really kicked in, I noticed that I couldn’t find any homemade dressings that didn’t contain cashews.

As I am allergic to all nuts, it tends to get very frustrating to find simple recipes to make at home that don’t contain any cashews, almonds, etc. I knew I wanted to create my own but was feeling stumped on how to do so.

That was until I discovered that hemp seeds could be the factor in fulfilling my love of Caesar salad again.


Hemp seeds are great and have a similar taste to sunflower seeds. However, by adding tons of other ingredients to the dressing that sunflower taste gets masked and just becomes a creamy component to tie the recipe together and allow it to have a creamy texture.

Instead of using croutons, I decided to switch it up using some baked buffalo chickpeas. I seriously love the spice of buffalo sauce and it makes such a great combination to balance out the flavors in the dish.
