Dairy-Free Caesar Salad Dressing: #218 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments

We have salad almost every day for lunch, so it’s nice every now and then to try a different dressing to go on top. This is a lovely, garlicky, lemony Caesar salad dressing without the dairy and eggs you might find in a traditional version. Happy munching!

This is part of our 1,000 Food Experiments to create sustainable meals for our family and hopefully yours.

Ingredients ($2 to dress 4 individual salads)

1 tsp garlic powder – $0.28
1/4 cup tahini – $1.15
2 tbsp olive oil – $0.20
1 lemon, juiced – $0.20
2 tbsp honey – $0.28
Salt and pepper to taste


1. In a small bowl, mix together all the dressing ingredients until smooth. Pour over your favorite salad and enjoy!
