Caesar Dressing

This is my adaptation of Minimalist Baker’s brilliant vegan caesar dressing. It’s briny, creamy, garlic-y, lemony, super satisfying, and oil-free! Sometimes I put olive oil and grand-reserve balsamic (the really thick stuff) on my salad in addition to this dressing, and it’s ridiculously good.
