Raw Vegan Caesar Salad

If you see a caesar salad on a menu, what are the chances of you ordering it? A lot of people live for this salad and enjoy comparing it from restaurant to restaurant. Perhaps one place has the dressing dialed in, while another place offers house made croutons. The main thing about a caesar salad is that the dressing needs to be on point and it has to include romaine lettuce. Between the crunch of the lettuce and creaminess of the dressing, you can’t go wrong.

Contrary to popular belief, the caesar salad is not named after Julius Caesar, the famous Roman dictator. Caesar Cardini, an Italian chef, invented the salad in the early 1920s. He owned a restaurant in Tijuana, Mexico, where he moved from California in 1924 to avoid Prohibition. As it happened, Cardini invented his salad on July 4th, 1924. He was short on ingredients in the kitchen, so he assembled a salad of the ingredients he had on hand: lettuce stalks, olive oil, raw egg, croutons, parmesan cheese, and Worcestershire sauce. Needless to say, the salad became a hit. Cardini’s salad is one of the most popular salads in America to this day.

Given its history, you know we had to bring our A game for this raw rendition of the classic salad. This salad consists of fresh, crunchy romaine lettuce, but we included cherry tomatoes and avocado because you can’t go wrong with those ingredients. The real star of the show is the cashew dressing, which will delight your palate. It has the flavors you crave and we hope you love it!
