This vegan Caesar salad is incredible and seriously way better than the typical Caesar salad! I used one of my favorite ingredients, cashews, to create a creamy Caesar dressing. I also experimented with tofu for the first time and used that in place of croutons. Wow! Who says salads are boring?!?!
I admit it… I was scared, nervous and intimidated to make a recipe with… tofu. It was one of those foods I always wanted to try out, but I wasn’t really sure what to make with it and I was worried the tofu wouldn’t turn out very good. I’m so glad that I bit the bullet- baking the tofu couldn’t be any easier, it turned out delicious and made this Vegan Caesar Salad even more delightful! The tofu takes the place of the typically used bread croutons, keeping this salad gluten-free and adds various nutrients. Tofu is an excellent source of iron, protein and calcium.
