  • 1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt

  • 2 Tablespoons Steak Sauce (vegan)
  • 1/2 Cup Vegan Mayo
  • 2 Tablespoons Sauerkraut Brine
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard

  1. In a large bowl, add the washed and chopped romaine.

  3. Combine all of the parmesan cheese ingredients in a blender or food processor. Pulse for about one minute until the ingredients resemble parmesan cheese crumbles. Don’t blend at high speed, or you will end up with cashew butter.
