It is amazing how well the flavors of nutritional yeast and lemon juice can dutifully mimic cheesy tastes. Slight variations on their amounts can yield surprising results. With no cheese in sight.
More lemon juice and less nutritional yeast equals a tangier result. Think: faux feta. But less juice and more yeast? You’ll have a slightly bolder and richer taste, like: hollandaise sauce or even, Gouda replication.
To make the dressing for this recipe, I used the former approach of less nutritional yeast and more lemon juice, in order to achieve a tangy caesar dressing with subtly rich notes. For a more mellow flavor, decrease the amount of lemon juice.
2 handfuls lettuce
1 handful croutons (recipe below for homemade version)
1/2 recipe Caesar Dressing
Directions: Place all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and toss. For maximum enjoyment, use hands.
