Caesar dressing recipe

This Caesar dressing really hits the spot. You know I love vinaigrettes, but sometimes only a creamy dressing will do. I’ve been feeling sentimental lately and decided to satisfy my craving for the classic Caesar salad.

This Caesar salad dressing requires just a few pantry ingredients. Stir them together while you bake up some croutons, and you’re ready to enjoy top-notch restaurant-quality Caesar salads at home.

Caesar dressing ingredients

Compared to other Caesar dressing recipes, this dressing is remarkably simple to make. We’ll start with a base of mayonnaise, which is easier than emulsifying oil and egg, not to mention foolproof.

This Caesar dressing is anchovy-free, which makes it suitable for vegetarians like me and anyone with a shellfish allergy. (Technically, anchovies are fish, but they are likely to cause reactions in this with shellfish allergies.) It will also appeal to anyone who is sensitive to anchovy flavor. This dressing offers bold, classic Caesar flavor, without the anchovies!

Vegan Strawberry Frosting

If you’re a strawberry lover, then this strawberry frosting is a must-try! Made with creamy vegan butter, ripe strawberry purée, and organic powdered sugar, it’s a trifecta of flavor, texture, and sweetness!

We created this recipe specifically for a vegan gluten-free strawberry cake (recipe coming soon!), and the results were phenomenal! We wanted to use fresh strawberries (versus dried or cooked) to preserve the vibrant fruity profile. This truly does taste like summer bliss on a spoon.

No ice cream cream maker? No problem. You don’t even need one to make some of the most amazing ice cream you’ve tasted! No-churn ice cream is made using just 5 easy to find ingredients and 10 minutes of prep. The ice cream is rich and creamy, and while the texture is slightly different than regular ice cream, it’s a great way to make a simple frozen dessert. In this post you’ll find my top 15 no-churn ice cream recipes, everything from classic vanilla to strawberry rhubarb, and a bonus recipe for Raspberry Chip! How to Make No-Churn Ice Cream I dedicated a whole chapter in my first cookbook to no-churn ice cream recipes because I love the ease and versatility of this method so much. No-churn ice cream is simply made by folding whipped cream into condensed milk, along with your favorite flavors or mix-in’s, then spreading in a pan and freezing. Besides heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk, you’ll add a bit of salt to cut the sweetness. And I like to add a small amount of cream cheese for it’s tang, to balance the flavors, and keep the ice cream smooth when it’s frozen. Using No-Churn Ice […]

Who doesn’t love homemade croutons? They’re wonderfully golden and crisp, and infinitely superior to dry, store-bought croutons.

The best part about homemade croutons is that you can use your favorite bread, even if it’s gone stale, and your croutons are ready in under 15 minutes.

sliced bread for croutons

Most salads benefit from a crisp, crunchy element, which could be anything from toasted nuts, tortilla strips, ice water-soaked red onion, or of course, the classic crouton.

I’ve been perfecting my homemade Caesar salad recipe lately, so I thought we’d start with the croutons. Off we go!

Jack is obsessed with this broccoli slaw recipe. Don’t get me wrong, I love it too, but I haven’t heard him rave about a salad this much since…I don’t know when.

I made it as a side dish with dinner the other night, and he hasn’t stopped talking about it since! Luckily for him, this broccoli slaw recipe is exactly the sort of thing I like to make in the summer. It’s light and refreshing, and it keeps well […]

Creamy Chocolate Hazelnut Milk

This creamy, DIY vegan chocolate milk is something special because it’s like Nutella in a glass. We know! Exciting stuff. It’s the real deal but without the dairy and refined sugar. Plus, it’s a bit more sophisticated than your average chocolate milk thanks to the nutty complexity of hazelnuts. And it’s super chocolaty thanks to cocoa or cacao powder.

Bonus perk? Just 5 ingredients required and it’s naturally sweetened with dates and maple syrup for more wholesome indulgence.
