Raw Vegan Caesar Salad Dressing

Today, I have the PERFECT summer salad recipe that I want to share with you. This raw vegan Caesar salad dressing is probably my most requested dressing recipe. My friends and family cannot get enough of it. Whenever I make it for potlucks (even for omnivorous barbecues), it’s the FIRST salad to be devoured and people can’t stop raving about it.

They don’t care that my dressing is oil-free, dairy free, or vegan, they just know it’s freaking delicious and they want to know how they can get the recipe!

Raw Vegan Caesar Salad Dressing

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeRaw VeganVegan


1 cup


  • 1/4 cup raw cashews (or raw sunflower seeds)
  • 1/8 cup raw sesame seeds (or raw pine nuts) or 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1/8-1/4 cup sunflower seeds (depending how thick you want it)
  • 3-4 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1-2 medium cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp mild miso (I use Genmai soy and brown rice miso)
  • 1/4 tsp kelp granules or other seaweed seasoning *optional
  • 1/2 tsp of dried dill
  • 2 dates or 1-2 tsp agave or other liquid sweetener
  • 1/2-2/3 cup filtered water (to thin as desired)
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Using a hand blender or in a regular blender, combine all ingredients(starting with 1 date or 1/2 tsp agave nectar) and purée until very smooth.
  2. Taste test. Add additional dates or agave nectar, garlic or lemon if desired to achieve the taste you are looking for.
  3. Add additional water to thin dressing if desired.


This dressing will thicken after refrigeration; you can thin it by stirring in 2-3 tsp water if desired. When thick, this dressing can be used as a veggie dip.
Cashews are higher in fat than sunflower seeds, so it’s up to you which you would prefer to use. Cashews will yield a creamier dressing, but be higher in calories.

This is SO good! As soon as I tasted it, I decided to double the batch. I didn't use dates or agave, added a small spoonful of vegan mayo for even more creaminess, and used dried seaweed in lieu of kelp (I couldn't find it in the store). Thanks for the recipe!
