Gingersnap Dairy-Free 'Caesar' Salad

This pretty Caesar salad recipe is filled with lots of good-for-you things like ground flax seeds, Brussels sprouts, and avocado. I know what you’re thinking. Yep, that’s right: a dairy-free, gluten-free Caesar salad.

Whoever said Caesar salads had to be filled with anchovies and mayo? Not me, and you surely don’t want to miss this recipe. Bon app, my friends!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Brussels sprouts, trimmed
  • 4 cups mixed greens, such as spinach, radicchio, etc.
  • 1/2 cup arugula
  • 3/4 cups rice milk
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin purée
  • 1 teaspoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons ground flax seeds
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1 tablespoon maca powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/6 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/6 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of sea salt

Directions

Steam the Brussels sprouts on the stovetop over medium heat until tender and bright green, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a large salad bowl. Add the mixed greens and arugula.

In a blender, combine the remaining ingredients and pulse until smooth. Pour the dressing onto the salad and gently toss to combine. Serve chilled. Enjoy.
