Weighing in late but wanted to say that I L.O.V.E. this recipe and so does my non-RAW DH. This is our "house" dressing now. I often add some dulse into the salad too to give it that "sea" taste. Well done!!

Kendra Far Above Rubies: I am glad you enjoyed, it is one of my favorites...actually, it's pretty much the ONLY dressing I make!

I just made myself another salad because of this dressing! It is so creamy and good! I made enough this time to last me for awhile (a whole bottle). This time I left out the braggs and just used more salt. It tastes more like Ceasar dressing now. The Braggs made it taste like a totally different dressing. I like both.
To cir1976...I don't think you HAVE to soak the pinenuts. It's just that soaking any raw nut makes it more digestible and makes the nutrients more available. It also seems to make blending the nuts easier. I soaked mine for 1 hour and they became very creamy.

Your dressing...that's what's up!!! Ceasar dressing that's eggless..vegan..I don't have to miss ceasar dressing anymore now ;-) Thank you mmmorgans! P.S. It emulsified very well for me. Perhaps because I didn't add a whole lot of water. But I did add less garlic, more lemon juice, and some braggs liquid aminos in place of the salt..yummy!

silent_advocate- I use lime, it is great, start off with juice from 1/4 lime and add more, I find the lime juice to be much stronger

Looks great, should you soak the pine nuts or use dry?

Thanks for the recipe. I was just thinking I wanted a new creamy garlicky dressing.
I bet this would taste good with brazil nuts, too.

Any nut would work! Just be sure to choose something that is not terribly strong in flavor as it may over power your dressing!

I think sunflower seeds are a good substitute too.

Is there any other nut that can be used? I'm not a big fan of pinenuts.
