Vegan Grilled Caesar Salad With Tofu Caesar Dressing

Vegan Grilled Caesar Salad With Tofu Caesar Dressing

Sometimes, there’s nothing better than a perfectly made, classic Caesar salad.

It’s creamy, crunchy, and just the right amount of tangy and savory flavors.

And let’s be real: It’s the dressing that really pulls everything together in a Caesar salad, but for vegans, the traditional Caesar dressing recipe is off-limits, since it typically includes anchovies and an egg yolk.

Luckily, with a simple tweak, it’s easy to make this a vegan salad with our Tofu Caesar Dressing — and we added a twist by grilling the romaine to give this recipe a little extra “oompf.”
