Always a crowdpleaser – a dairy-free vegetarian caesar salad recipe

Dairy Free Caesar Salad

A caesar salad is a universal crowdpleaser. It's always a hit when you're entertaining. This slightly modified recipe allows you to cater for those with dietary requirements. If you're cooking for people who are dairy-free and vegetarian - or perhaps you're a dairy-free vegetarian yourself - you'll adore this take on a modern classic.

½ cos lettuce, leaves pulled apart, chopped if desired

¼ avocado, peeled and sliced
1 piece wholegrain bread, toasted and cut finely to croutons
1-2 tablespoons sauerkraut


2 tablespoons coconut yoghurt
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon nutritional yeast
Sea salt and black pepper

2. Spread dressing over the base of your plate or bowl or if you’d prefer to save and dollop around the salad at the end.
3. Arrange lettuce leaves on a plate, top with boiled eggs, walnuts, avocado, croutons and sauerkraut.
4. Season with sea salt and black pepper and enjoy.
