Pin It This dressing checks many boxes for me. It's easy to prepare, stores well in the fridge, it's healthy and probably best of all, it's something that both my (vegetarian) self and my husband (not vegetarian) can enjoy. All checked!
The source of this recipe is rather unusual... I found it at Oprah's website. She was trying a 21 days cleanse where she basically had to go vegan. The whole idea was to get people to become more conscious about what we eat. The good thing about it was that some of the dishes she ate (all prepared by her wonderful chefs, of course) ended up on her website with the recipes. That's when I saw this dressing, which was named "Homemade Caesar ". I just though Tofu Caesar was more appropriate. The original recipe makes a LOT of dressing, so I cut it in half, sort of. It makes one "mayo-size" jar like this one in the pictures. To see the original recipe from Oprah's chef, click here. To see my version, just keep reading.
Tofu Caesar Dressing Recipe:
8 oz soft tofu
1/4 cup lime juice
2 garlic cloves (sometimes I use 3, but that makes it really garlicky)
2 tbsp tahini
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp capers
1/2 cup olive oil
a handful of chopped parsley
Blend all the ingredients except oil and parsley. With blender running, slowly add oil. Add parsley and pulse a few times to combine.
Store in a air-tight container and refrigerate it.
I use this dressing for making Caesars as well in chopped salads. It goes nicely with tomatoes and onions.
