Healthy Caesar Salad

Ingredients:
6 cups of chopped organic romaine lettuce
2 cups of organic raw cashews
4 cloves of garlic
2 heaping tablespoons of Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons organic lemon juice
½ – 1 cup milk of your choice
Salt and Pepper to taste
Gluten-Free Croutons
Nutritional Yeast Flakes
1-2 Anchovies (optional)

 

Directions:
Soak the cashews for 2 hours in water. Drain and rinse. In a blender, combine the cashews, garlic, mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper and ½ cup of milk. Blend on high speed until creamy. You may want to add more milk depending on the consistency you prefer. Sometimes I do throw in an anchovy or two –
Place the romaine lettuce in a large bowl, cover with dressing, toss. Top with croutons and use nutritional yeast flakes in place of cheese. Delicious and nutritious!!
