Caesar Salad (feat. Our Nirvana Mix and a Vegan Caesar Dressing)
The Nirvana Mix is our best seller at Farmer's Markets and home delivery customers. It contains the perfect mix of Sunflower, Sweet Pea Shoots, Broccoli and Radish. It serves 4-6 people as a dinner salad or it can be split up into multiple salads during the week.
I am definitely not a Vegan, but I will admit that I love a few vegan dishes. I started making this vegan Caesar dressing about 6 months ago and now we eat it twice per week - it goes perfectly with our Nirvana Mix.
This recipe makes enough dressing for for one container of the Nirvana Mix.
1/3 cup Hummus
1 tspn Dijon Mustard
Juice of 2 lemons
2 cloves garlic finely minced
1 tbsn Capers chopped
1 tspn of the Caper juice from jar
salt & pepper to taste
3-4 tbsp olive oil
1/3 cup Nutritional Yeast
Mix together the hummus, mustard, lemon juice, garlic, nutritional yeast, capers and caper juice.
Add olive oil and whisk until thoroughly combined. You adjust the consistency by adding more or less oil or lemon juice.
