I love caesar dressing, but once I found out all the chemicals in the bottles at the store plus loads of unnecessary calories, I stopped buying it.  I'll let the bottles stay on the shelf at the store and use real food to make it at home. This dressing will actually benefit your health rather than consuming empty calories with processed brands. 

The main ingredient is avocado, which assists in supplying our bodies with more benefits from the plants we eat. We need healthy fats to help us absorb more nutrients from food. You'll also be getting a good supply of B vitamins from the Nutritional Yeast. The garlic has cancer fighting properties and Apple Cider Vinegar comes with all kinds of benefits.

This dressing is so easy to make. All you do is blend everything together. Store the rest in the fridge in an airtight container to enjoy for a week. I love adding this to a bed of romaine and topping it with my parmesan cashew cheese. It's a prefect side with my Meggplant Lasagna or any Italian dish.
