Traditionally, caesar salad is made with anchovies… cheese… mayonnaise… and raw egg! Shocking right?! Then to think of pouring that combination over your delicate nutrient-rich veggies?! I can’t even. But I CAN with this recipe. It it 100% vegan and made with clean plant-based ingredients you’re going to love. The combination results in the perfect copy-cat caesar flavor and the texture is just as creamy. To make this creamy vegan dressing you’re going to need:
Heck yes it is! Any time you construct a recipe with mostly whole, plant-based ingredients you are set up for success, but especially compared to traditional caesar salads – this recipe is the obvious stand out. Besides the dressing, which is full of nutrients and free of animal-based saturated fat, the kale provides an abundance of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
One of my favorite things about this salad is that it can totally be made ahead of time. Because the kale is so hearty, you can even dress the salad in advance and it will only get tastier the next day! If you’re going to keep it in the fridge for multiple days, I would wait until right before serving to add the dressing and toss.
If you don’t love tofu yet, trust me – you’re about to. While my heart will always be held by pan seared or crispy oven baked tofu, this recipe is for the grill lovers.

Follow the steps below and you will be eating PERFECT grilled tofu on this vegan kale caesar salad in no time.
