  • 3 tbsp dijon mustard or whole grain

Instructions

  • Whisk together the tahini with the mustard, garlic, tamari, lemon juice and nutritional yeast until smooth. Start pouring in the water and continue whisking until the dressing is thinned out to your liking. 
  • Add the red chili and capers, taste and adjust seasonings with sea salt If needed.
  • Pour the Caesar dressing over the romaine leaves and toss to oat well. Serve promptly. 

Notes

  • You can  easily double this recipe except the water. Use 1/2 cup water and add some more as needed after everything is combine.
  • If doubling the recipe make sure to increase the garlic one clove at the time as it can easily overpower if not careful.
  • The salad can be topped with some of this walnut vegan parmesan,or like you see in my photos some grated macademia nuts, it's crazy how much it resembled parmesan cheese.
