Let's get real about Caesar dressing. Although it tastes delicious, making it from scratch poses a few dilemmas: first, there's the raw egg yolks in the original recipe. Then there's dealing with the anchovies, which many people either love or hate.
So why not take the vegan route? A vegan Caesar dressing can have the same oomph of the classic, except with none of the worries about getting food poisoning or annoying fishy flavour. Plus, it won't spoil at picnics or other outdoor gatherings.
