I routinely use the recipe calculator for the sake of convenience: enter the total of what I cooked with for a dish so I can track it without "doing the math" for every ingredient. But today I submitted my first recipe to the shared database! It's a Caesar-style vegan dressing, and full of garlic, hence the name "Garlicky Caesar Dressing (vegan)."
There are a few other vegan Caesars on the site, but none use fresh garlic, which in my book, is essential to a proper Caesar.
We had it for lunch today, tossed with romaine and kale, with lots of sweet little cherry tomatoes on top. Dave is a dressing fiend and I have been known to get on his case about how much he uses, but this time it was a non-issue, as it is not a nutritional black hole. I would have taken a picture, but the salads were gone before I thought of it.
