Remember those tofu croutons from last week?
They pair especially well with a Vegetarian Caesar Salad (which is NOT actually what's pictured above--that's just a pretty salad photo to give you some eye candy or, erm, eye salad [new term for the health-conscious eater?])
Most Caesar dressings have anchovies (or at least Worcestershire sauce, which itself usually has anchovy paste), and so this dressing recipe I'll share with you is exciting in its ability to maintain that creamy tang minus the oily fishes.
For a typical Caesar salad, toss a bunch of greens (romaine lettuce is standard) with grated Parmesan, croutons (of the bread or tofu variety!), and some of this dressing. Or, mix it up, and use this dressing on other kinds of salads, or even as a nice sauce for roasted vegetables. Anyway you use it, it's delicious.
