This summer, why not prepare something quick and easy for the family to eat before (or during) some fun activities?
This recipe for Dairy-Free Chicken Caesar Sandwiches is a healthier twist on a tasty favourite. The dressing would work well as a Caesar salad dressing, too!
4 barbecued chicken breasts
8 leaves of romaine lettuce
8 slices of bread (gluten-free or sprouted is best)
2 large tomatoes, sliced
1 cup sunflower sprouts
1 serving of caesar dressing (see recipe, below)
1⁄2 cup macadamia nuts
1/4 cup pine nuts
3-5 Medjool dates (depends on how sweet you like it)

1 tbsp. nutritional yeast
3-4 thumb sized cloves of garlic
1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt
1/4 tsp. cracked black pepper (or more to taste)
1/4 cup water
4-5 lemons, juiced
Place all ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth.
Yield: Makes 4 sandwiches.
