Viva la Vegan Caesar!

 Is a Caesar salad possible without the egg yolks, anchovies, and parmesan cheese? Why, yes it is!!! Thanks to Chef Chloe! I have tried many vegan versions but this one is my favorite, from her book Chloe’s Kitchen. I think the capers are the key!

What you need:
¼ cup soft tofu
¼ cup olive oil
2 gloves garlic
2 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs white vinegar
1 tbs Dijon mustard
1 tbs white miso paste
1 tsp sea salt
½ tsp freshly ground pepper

1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
2 tbs drained capers

Make your own or you can purchase healthy, dairy free versions at WFs

What you do:
1.)    Blend all dressing ingredients till smooth
2.)    In a large bowl,  combine lettuce and capers
3.)    Toss with dressing and add croutons
