HELP!! I LOVE caesar dressing... does anyone have a good raw recipe for this? I've tried Alissa's but I don't care for it. I am looking for something that tastes as close as possible to the real deal. Thanks to all with suggestions!!! :D

there is a nice one in Renee Loux Underkoffler's book for a Tamarind Caesar. You might not like the tamarind if you're after an "authentic" caesar taste, you could either go easy on the tamarind, or leave it out, and taste and adjust. You could make some "Rawmesan, " croutons, etc.

in alissa's book there is 2 diff recipes for caesar did you try both?
I think my fav one is not cynthias caesar but the other one above that
I'm not sure if we did something wrong, but when we made the tamarind caesar from Renee's book, it turned out horrible -- and we had 2 giant jars of it to throw out!
There are 2 caeser dressing recipes in Alissa's book -- have you tried them both? Personally, I adore Alissa's caesar dressing and think it is pretty darn close to the original. Of course, it's pretty fatty, so I don't eat the stuff every day.
Perhaps you could start with her dressing as a base recipe and add or take away things to make it more to your liking?

I made an attempt at Caesar as well as Ranch. Neither were like the SAD versions. I got close on the Ranch, though, but the spices weren't right.
Caesar is oil, vinegar and/or lemon, egg yolk, spice like paprika or touch of cayenne, garlic (would prob. use shallot). I don't do egg but maybe could sub with lecithin or something. Let me know what you've tried. I've not given up on the quest, either.

If I can add some ingredients to what LGG said is in a SAD Caesar, my SAD Caesar was:
coddled egg (egg in boiling water for 1 minute)
tsp of dijon mustard
hint of worcestershire
lots of black pepper
Parmigiano Reggiano (parmesan)
So I would think it would be fairly easy to make a raw analog, even using that as a blueprint. You could use a little Nama Shoyu if you use that stuff & some raw mustard for flavorings. You could blend some creamy nuts like cashews or whatever to sub out the egg, and thicken it up, OR use a raw mayonnaise base if you like your Caesars mayonaisey, because the egg, oil, and lemon juice in the SAD version basically emulsifies into a mayo. I'm not saying eat parmesan, this is a raw vegan site, however Parmigiano Reggiano is a raw unpasteurized cheese.
