My daughter is a vegan, the funny thing is, she doesn't really like salads. She does like Caesar salad though, as it is creamier and crunchier. After playing with this recipe, I came up with something she really liked. The great thing is, my whole family enjoyed it!
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon lemon juice
5 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise (I use *Vegenaise)
3 cloves garlic
6 tablespoons olive oil
Fresh pepper to taste
Heat the oil and garlic over medium heat in a small pan until the garlic begins to turn pale gold. Remove from the heat and let cool.
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients, carefully add the oil and garlic mixture, keep mixing until you get a nice texture. Add fresh pepper to taste.
1 head of romaine chopped small
2 tomatoes diced small
1 avocado diced small
1/2 cup vegan mozzarella (I use **Daiya brand)
2 tablespoon vegan parmesan (I use ***Galaxy Parmesan topping)
1 recipe Caesar salad dressing
Toss in all the salad ingredients to mix, add the dressing over the salad. Mix and serve.
This will make 4 servings
