Ingredients

Find the complete ingredient list, with measurements, in the recipe card below.

  • Vegan Mayonnaise: We recommend Chosen Foods Classic Mayo as it uses avocado instead of egg yolks to make the spread rich and creamy.
  • Garlic: Freshly minced garlic cloves are non-negotiable.
  • Lemon Juice: Fresh lemon juice brightens and balances the creaminess.
  • Mustard: A grainy, robust mustard is perfect. We use a stone ground mustard.

  • Parmesan Cheese: The nutty and salty notes from the parmesan are key to achieving the signature classic Caesar dressing flavor.

Substitutions

  • Substitute the mayonnaise with Greek yogurt or sour cream for a tangy and creamy dressing.
  • Experiment with different mustards, such as Dijon mustard. If all you have on hand is yellow mustard, that works too.
  • For a vegan version, swap the parmesan cheese for a vegan product. Nutritional yeast is popular, as well as cashew parm.
