Everybody has a Caesar Salad recipe and I think every one of my cookbooks has a version of this popular salad. Compare this vegan version tothe recipe from 12 Months of Monastery Salads . This recipe also calls for three ingredients which one needs to have on hand from other recipes or purchase from a vegan source: Vegan Worcestershire Sauce, Tasty Topping (Gomasio) and Croutons.
I have allowed time to prepare the croutons and boil an egg for garnish. The salad itself takes scarcely 10 minutes to put together. The dressing is especially delicious.
I had to make one substitution. Boston lettuce is near impossible to get in Toronto in January. Sturdy lettuces like Romaine and iceberg dominate the shelves at this time of year. So I replaced the Boston lettuce with fresh spinach. I also ducked out of making the croutons myself and used a commercial preparation instead. My bad! Will try this again when I can get Boston lettuce and maybe do the croutons myself then, too.
