I recently attended a birthday dinner for one of my good friends, and her husband served this AMAZING Wasabi Caesar Dressing.  I admit I was unsure of what to think about it initially, but I was blown away with how good it was, and I have been dreaming about it ever since.  It was literally one of the best salad dressings I’ve ever had! Since dairy and I don’t mix well, I was on a mission to create my own, and after a few failed attempts, I landed on this adaptation of the Minimalist Baker (I love her stuff) 5-minute Vegan Caesar Dressing.  You will want to adjust the horseradish/wasabi based on your heat tolerance and understand it may need to be adjusted even more so for children.  If you’re looking for the classic Caesar dressing, omit the horseradish/wasabi.


1/4 c.          Hummus (plain/clean store-bought may also work)

1 tsp.           Spicy mustard

2-3 tbsp.    Lemon juice

2 tsp.          Capers cured in salt

4                  Garlic cloves (minced)

1 pinch       Himalayan or sea salt

1 pinch       Black pepper

3 tbsp.        Olive oil

3-5 tsp.       Horseradish (minced) (wasabi may be used if you find a clean option but you will want to use slightly less)


In a small bowl, combine all ingredients and stir until well combined and creamy.


I have linked cleaner low glutamate options to make the recipe lower in glutamate.
