Almost Caesar Salad

The creamy dressing in this Almost Caesar Salad is reminiscent of the classic version but takes less than 3 minutes to make! Processing the walnuts with a few flavorful ingredients offers a wonderful egg-like texture, while the capers stand in beautifully for anchovies. Give it a try—you’ll be glad you did!
