Caesar salads are one of my all time favorites. I just had one for dinner this week on a girls night out with the Moms in my life <3 The salad itself is pretty boring, but the incredible flavors from the dressing are what gives it life. I’m a total snob when it comes to Caesar dressing, and this one’s a winner! It’s salty, tangy and sharp, just how I like it!
The classic Caesar dressing is made with raw eggs and anchovies. I do love the classic, but for this recipe, we’re changing it up. We’re going to get our anchovy flavor from Worcestershire (most Worcestershire sauces contain anchovies) and replace the raw eggs with tofu. Because tofu has emulsifiers in it, it’s the perfect replacement for the eggs. If you’re squeamish about raw eggs, this is a great alternative for you. All you need is your trusty blender.
Start off by adding 2 ounces of cubed Parmesan cheese to the blender.
Blend on low until the cheese gets chopped up into tiny pieces, like so. Next, add in the garlic, Dijon mustard, white wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper tofu and olive oil. Blend until smooth.
Pour into a small bowl and dip your Giant Caesar (from your garden 🙂 ) or Romaine leaves right in. If you’ve never eaten a Caesar salad with your fingers this way, I highly recommend giving it a try.
Hope you all have a nice relaxing weekend!
