Easy Five Ingredient Caesar Salad

Caesar Salad Recipe
McKel Hill

On-the-go? If you don’t have a blender simply mash all of the “wet” ingredients with the back of your fork working it into the romaine lettuce.


2-3cups romaine lettuce, chopped
1/2cup chickpeas (2 hard boiled eggs or other protein choice if not vegan)
3tablespoons hemp seeds
1/2 avocado
2tablespoons nutritional yeast
garlic, optional
apple cider vinegar, optional


  1. Chop romaine lettuce and set aside in a serving bowl.
  2. For the dressing: In a blender or food processor, combine avocado, hemp seeds and nutritional yeast. Optional ingredients to add to the mix are garlic and a dash of apple cider vinegar. Blend together for a thick and creamy dressing.
  3. Pour dressing over romaine lettuce. Combine and top with chickpeas. If you’d like to add another protein source instead of a vegetarian friendly protein, try grilled chicken.
