We made our dressing one hundred percent vegan, of course, and trust me when I say that it’s one of the best I’ve ever had!

If you’re feeling extra fancy, or just enjoy a good wrap like me, we’ve also got a Caesar salad wrap that we know you will love! We recommend making a bunch of this dressing and using for different things through the week to give your meals an extra umpf.

    what high speed blender do you guys use!?

  2. Kenzie Fodness says:

    Is there any replacement for the vegan Worcestershire sauce ? I can’t find it in stores near me. Would soy sauce work?

    • I have not tested this with sou sauce but I found online that this will work: If you’re out of Worcestershire sauce, use 2 teaspoons soy sauce, 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon sugar and a dash of hot sauce for every tablespoon Worcestershire the recipe calls for.

    This is delish, Jasmine! I had a kale Caesar a few days ago at True Food Kitchen and I’ve been obsessed ever since! Glad to find an oil free version…it’s a keeper!
