Lemon Vegan Parmesan Vinaigrette

Lemon Vegan Parmesan Vinaigrette

I created this recipe for a “Vegan/ Vegetarian” catering event and the client wanted a salad but no dairy.  I suggested a “Kale Caesar” salad that would not only be tasty but completely vegan.  Its creamy, light, and rich with garlic and pepper notes. It’s got all the flavor of a traditional Caesar, with none of the eggs, dairy, or anchovies. This recipe is a great substitute for those who are looking to try something new or whom have dietary restrictions but does not want to sacrifice on flavor. I used panko bread crumbs to give you that crunch and fresh sliced cherry tomatoes.  Happy Eating!
