VEGAN CAESAR SALAD

noun_divider_2142034

   Romaine lettuce, bread croutons, vegan parmesan cheese and vegan Caesar Salad dressing as main ingredients. This salad is fresh and very crunchy, it has a mild and deep lovely taste due to the ingredients in dressing mixture. 

  The blend of nutritional yeast, vegan oyster sauce and black salt carries the taste of dressing in this vegan version of an old dish that was created/invented in the last century by Italian chef Caesar Cardini. The original version uses anchovies, so therefore I used some oyster sauce to substitute the specific (fish) flavour, though not too much – only 1 tsp. To substitute the egg flavour there is some black salt in it. 

 

     This salad is not too strong, it can be served as a side dish or as an easy main course – lunch or dinner – depending on the occasion.
