Summer is the perfect time to enjoy fresh, vibrant salads, but let’s be honest, salads can sometimes get a bad rap for being boring. However, they don’t have to be! 

The key to a delicious salad often lies in the dressing, but many store-bought dressings are loaded with extra fat and hidden calories that can derail your healthy eating goals.

Check out this vegan, paleo, and oil-free Caesar salad dressing recipe! This dressing is creamy, tangy, and full of the classic Caesar taste you love, minus the guilt (and cheese for those of us who don’t tolerate dairy well)! 

P.S. If you’re following our Metabolic Balance Program, this is a great recipe if you have avocados on your plan!

  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted (about 1/2 cup mashed)
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon raw apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast


  1. Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a high-speed blender, and blend until completely smooth.
  2. Pour over chopped Romaine lettuce (or greens of your choice), and toss well to coat.
  3. Serve with roasted potatoes as “croutons,” if desired. Leftover dressing can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.
