A raw vegan Caesar salad recipe that will make you love dairy-free, oil-free salads. This recipe uses chia seeds to thicken it, not gunky emulsifiers and thickeners often found in the processed, store-bought stuff. Chia is such an easy, omega-3 rich way to make your salad dressing stick to your salad greens. Which is always a good thing.




For the salad
  • 1 head romaine lettuce
  • 1 nori sheet
  • Black pepper, to taste
For the dressing
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 garlic clove (optional - I did not use it, but you can if you want it to be more authentic)
  • 2 tablespoons soaked capers
  • 1 medium zucchini


For the dressing
  1. Blend all ingredients until completely smooth. If you would like the dressing to turn out white, peel the zucchini and save the peels for a juice or put them in any other sauce, dressing, or dip.
To assemble
  1. Chop the romaine thinly.
  2. Tear a nori sheet by hand and sprinkle into the romaine.
  1. Mix with the dressing, and sprinkle with black pepper.


The dressing makes enough for 2 salads (2 heads of romaine), or for 1 salad if you really love plenty of dressing!
