This Caesar salad dressing uses silken tofu for creaminess instead of raw egg or mayo which is ideal for vegetarian menus and has the extra benefit of a protein boost. Feel free to use whatever crunchy, interesting toppings you like best when your dress your salad. Serve this dressing over Kale Caesar Salad With Garlic Croutons or use this recipe as a dip for raw veggies or smear on toasted bread for an open-faced chicken Caesar sandwich.
