Yield: 1 serving

My version of this salad looks like the traditional caesar but replaces the egg yolk and anchovies with a delicious vegan ranch dressing.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 head romaine lettuce
  • 3 tablespoons Ranch Dressing
  • 1/2 roma tomato, seeded and diced
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced black olives
  • 6 very thin slices red onion (optional)
  • Freshly ground pepper (optional)


Equipment

  • mandoline (optional, for thinly slicing onion)
  • cutting board
  • chef’s knife, 8-inch
  • salad spinner
  • serrated knife, 5-inch
  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • medium bowl
  • tongs
  • serving plate


Remove the wilted outer leaves from the romaine lettuce. Slice the remaining inner leaves into 1-inch strips. Using a salad spinner, wash and dry the strips. Put the lettuce and the Ranch Dressing in a medium bowl and toss well. Transfer to a serving plate and top with the tomato, olives, and optional red onion and pepper. Serve immediately.

NEVER BOIL YOUR VEGGIES! steam them if you must, but NEVER BOIL! boiling veegigs sucks out all the nutrients and flavor into the water, and some veegigs get bitter or off-tasting if you boil them. the only time you should EVER boil your veegigs is if you’re making a vegetable stock, in which case, you’re not going to be eating the veegigs after anyway.
