Vegan Caesar salad for a substantial serving of greens on Meatless Monday

No one's saying you have to go meatless just because it's Monday -- but as incentive to join the growing movement, every week we're offering an animal-free recipe.

Caesar salad is a popular way to get your fix of leafy greens, and no wonder: The roughage is deliciously crisp, creamy, garlicky and briny. Unfortunately for vegetarians and vegans, that brine comes from anchovies more often than not -- so here's a version that'll make a decent dinner for three or four hungry adults that requires no heating of ingredients whatsoever. (No dairy, either!)
