Single Serving Caesar Salad with Tempeh Croutons

Caesar salad addict here.  Every vegan restaurant I visit, I try their caesar salad, so I consider myself a bit of an expert.  This is among the best.  The dressing is garlicky and lemony and creamy. And the “croutons” made of tempeh give a satisfying crunch while also adding protein and keeping carbs lower.  If you do have more carbs to play with, by all means, make some croutons with actual bread and throw those in as well–it will only make it more delicious!
