Almond Cesar Salad

Soup and salad is such a simple combo, but it one of my top 3 things to make/eat for dinner. One of our favorite salads is my Creamy Hemp Cesar Salad, but after eating that 3 million times, I wanted to switch it up . . . just a little.

This Almond Cesar Salad comes from Thug Kitchen, and I served it with Vegan Stew this time around .  This would also make for a nice dinner side, or serve it to hungry guests while you get their entrees together!


-1/3 Cup sliced or slivered almonds

-1/3 Cup hot water

-1 – 2 cloves garlic

-1/4 Cup extra virgin olive oil

-2 Tablespoons lemon juice

-1 teaspoon dijon mustard

-1 teaspoon rice vinegar

-1 head of your favorite lettuce, chopped up


-Put the almonds in a glass with the hot water & let them soak for about 15 minutes

-Chop up the garlic

-When the almonds start feeling soft. throw them in your food processor with the water they soaked in, the garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, & vinegar. Blend it up until there are no more large almond pieces & it starts to look creamy

-Chill the dressing until you are ready to eat

-Serve a couple of tablespoons of dressing over your favorite lettuce

-Optional toppings: cucumber, garbanzo beans, hemp seeds
