Vegan Caesar Salad Dressing Using Hemp

High Protein Hemp Caesar Salad Dressing

I love Caesar salad dressing, but it’s super high in calories and is typically tricky to make from scratch.

It also contains anchovies and lots of dairy and eggs. This recipe is free from animal products and is low in calories. It’s also very high in protein because of the nutritious hemp hearts.

30g of hemp hearts contains 10 grams of protein and 10 grams of Omega 3 & 6!

This recipe uses 1/2 cup of hemp hearts offering a whopping 28 grams of protein!

The hemp hearts pulsed in a food processor gives this creamy dressing that ‘parmesan’ like taste and feel. This recipe is gluten & dairy free making it great for allergies or food diet preferences. It also takes only a few minutes to make and tastes delicious; what’s not to like?

I use a mini food processor to make this great salad dressing as it’s super quick and efficient. If you don’t have a mini food processor a larger one or a good blender will do although it might not blend the hemp hearts as well.

Easy & Healthy Hemp Caesar Salad Dressing

  • 1/2 cup of Hemp Hearts
  • Lemon Juice 1/8 cup
  • Apple Cider Vinegar 1/8 cup
  • 1/8 cup of Udo’s Oil 3-6-9 Blend (or other oil)
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1 tsp Himalayan Salt (or salt to taste)
Pulse in a mini food processor until creamy & smooth. Done!

This recipe makes enough for 2 large salads, you may double it for a larger amount.

    • I’ve only eaten it fresh, it would definitely need to be refrigerated after & used up within a couple of days 🙂

  1. I just made this and omg it’s great but I added 1 tablespoon of Nutritional yeast to give it more of the ceaser taste !!!!! 👍🏼

    • Usually caeser dressing is made with anchovies not sardines, and because this recipe is vegan (meat, fish, egg and dairy free) the fish is omitted. But I’m sure a splash of worcestershire sauce would remedy that if you find it necessary. Hope that helps 🙂

  2. With the hydroponic lettuces continually growing and it being the middle of summer, I’m on a salad kick. This is so delicious I double the recipe to have it on hand. There hasn’t been an issue with refrigeration for just under a week.
