The recipe came about when I was attempting to create a Caesar salad dressing.
I have to admit, it’s been a long time since I’ve had an actual Caesar salad. So, I’m not sure I remember exactly what Caesar dressing tastes like.
I’m pretty sure this one doesn’t quite taste like it, but it is so good I had to share it. Rather than calling it a Caesar dressing, I’ve decided a more accurate name for it is Savory Garlic Dressing.
What’s in this salad dressing?
There are a lot of cashew based sauces out there, but I decided to switch things up and use slivered almonds this time. In addition to almonds, this garlicky dressing contains:
- A bit of nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor
- Lemon juice and Dijon mustard for tang
- Capers add a bit of brininess
- Garlic – lots of it!
- Vegan Worcestershire sauce for some savoriness
- Salt and Pepper
If you’re not as big a fan of garlic as my family is, feel free to reduce the amount. However, I think that’s what makes this dressing so good.
How to make this dressing
This Savory Garlic Dressing goes together in minutes and couldn’t be easier. Simply place all the ingredients in a high speed blender like a Vitamix, and blend until the dressing is completely smooth.
I store my dressing in a jar with an air tight lid. It will last in the refrigerator for about a week.
Ways to enjoy this salad dressing

I asked my husband if there was anything more he thinks I should say about this dressing. His response, “It’s yummy!” We hope you think so too!
