Blackened Tempeh Salad

The dressing on this salad has to be one of the most amazing dressings I have ever tasted. It is called Casinera's Cesar Dressing, I got it from the Eat To Live website. Here are the ingredients:

1/2 cup raw cashews
1 cup plain soymilk
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
black pepper to taste
2 tablespoon of lemon juice
4-8 cloves of ROASTED garlic (I use one tablespoon of toasted garlic granules, I don't like too much garlic)
then blend up in a vita-mix or other powerful blender.

Eat To Live website has the best salad dressings and they only use whole food fats, a good example is the one above. There is not any extracted oil only ground nuts (good fat) which helps in digesting the nutrients in the salad. The rest of the salad is baby romaine with tomatoes and blackened tempeh from The Real Food Daily cookbook. All of it was very good.
