These vegan caesar salad wraps start with a simple vegan caesar dressing, vegan chicken cut up, and crunchy croutons, all wrapped into a delicious tortilla. This is a great recipe for an every night meal or delicious enough for having guests over.

We have been living on this vegan chicken caesar salad wrap recipe!

They are seriously delicious.

I could probably serve these three nights a week and not even get a complaint.

They are great for the summer because they taste light but still filling.

I was unsure how my kids would take to them.

Well, I already knew the 5-year-old would be a hard no.

He won’t even give it an honorable mention to try it. 

But my 8-year-old mobs on these.

He ate one for dinner, then asked for one for a bedtime snack, then again for an after-school snack. I was shocked at how much he enjoyed them.

They are easy to make.

This uses a homemade dressing, but it whips up in a jiffy.

I also use bread crumbs for croutons in this. 

They are easy to make and seasoned just like croutons. 

In writing this, it made it sounds like I am unaware that bread is croutons, but I am aware =) Just roll with it.

Vegan Caesar Salad Wraps Recipe Q&A

vegan caesar salad wraps

Can I make these wraps gluten-free?

Yes, you can use a gluten-free tortilla and either use gluten-free bread crumbs or the crispy chickpeas croutons.

You will also need to use a vegan chicken nugget that is gluten-free.

Can I use store-bought croutons?

Yes, you’re welcome to buy them if you don’t want to make them.

You can also sub out the bread for a gluten-free option and make chickpea croutons instead.

Can I make these more plant-based with faux meat?

Yes, you can make these vegan chickpea caesar salad wraps instead, or you can season and make some breaded tofu if you prefer.

Can I make this oil-free?

You can omit the oil and add vegan plain yogurt in its place.

Instead of vegan chicken nuggets, season chickpeas instead.

Can I make this nut-free?

I’ve never tried it, but you can try making the sauce with sunflower seeds instead of cashews.

What ingredients do you need for these vegan caesar wraps?

Check out the recipe card at the bottom of this post for the full recipe.

  • Cashews
  • Water
  • Oil (olive oil, vegetable oil, avocado oil, whichever)
  • Lemon Juice
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic
  • Vegan Worchestire sauce
  • Capers
  • Salt
  • vegan parmesan cheese *optional (raw cashews, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, salt)
  • Two bread slices
  • Parsley, dried
  • Oregano, dried
  • Garlic Powder
  • Black Pepper
  • Cooked Vegan Chicken Strips- like Gardien
  • 1-2 heads of crisp romaine lettuce
  • Tortillas or vegan wraps
  • optional; red onion diced

How do you make these Vegan Caesar Salad Wraps?

The first step I like to start with is the homemade caesar dressing (vegan, of course).

It’s made with cashews to make it nice a creamy.

You need a high-speed blender.

If you do not have one, you can soak your cashews ahead of time to get them soft enough for a regular blender.

Throw your cashews, water, oil, lemon juice, dijon mustard, onion powder, garlic, Worcestershire, capers, and salt in a blender and blend until smooth.

I usually set this in the fridge at this point and let the flavors come together a bit.

Now let’s make your crunchy croutons;

Start with your bread. I like to give them a little toast in the toaster.

Then crumble the bread up on a baking sheet lined with a Silpat or parchment paper.

Take the oil and seasoning, mix it up with the crumbs, and keep them in a single layer.

You’ll bake this for 8 minutes in a 400-degree preheated oven. Set aside when they are cooked.

Now let’s make the vegan chicken;

Cook your vegan Chicken strips as the package states. 

If you aren’t into faux meat you could use chickpeas and season them.

I almost always have my favorite Cashew Parmesan made up and in the fridge.

So it’s easy for me to add this extra bit of flavor to these wraps.

If you don’t want to go the extra step of making it, it’s okay. It won’t change the flavor too much, but it is a little tastier with it.

We just use a standard flour tortilla, but you could make your own using this tasty tortilla here; store-bought works great, or you could use a whole wheat tortilla if you prefer.

There are two ways you could make these wraps.

I personally like to make them up individually.

That way, you get an even amount in each wrap.

But another great way is if you were serving them to a crowd, it would be better to make up a salad in a large bowl and then fill your wrap with the salad contents.

Whatever works for your family works for me.

How do you serve these chik’n caesar wraps?

These can be served as a wrap or even as a salad. They are best served at room temperature.

They make a perfect lunch or easy dinner.

How do you store leftovers?

Leftovers should be stored separately in airtight containers. 

The salad will get weepy if the creamy dressing is left on the fresh lettuce.

You can reheat the vegan chicken or just serve it cold in the wrap. 

Either way, it will still have great flavor.

Can you freeze this meal?

You can freeze the easy caesar salad dressing in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.

You can also freeze the vegan chicken and the croutons, but I would get fresh lettuce.

Vegan Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps

Yield: 6 -8 wraps

Total Time: 40 minutes

These vegan chicken caesar salad wraps are a great lunch or summe dinner.

Ingredients

Caesar Dressing

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 TB olive oil
  • 1 TB lemon juice
  • 1/2 TB Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 TB vegan worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp capers
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Bread crumbs

  • 4 pieces of bread, toasted
  • 2 TB oil
  • 1/2 tsp parsley, dried
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp oregano, dried
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

Other Ingredients

  • 1-2 heads romaine lettuce, chopped up
  • 1 bag vegan chicken strips, cooked and chopped
  • 1 bag tortillas of your choice
  • 1/4-1/2 cup Cashew Parmesan cheese (recipe link below)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees f
  2. Start by making your dressing. Throw everything into a high-speed blender. I use a Blendtec Twister jar for this. Put it in a jar and set it aside when it's all combined.
  3. Clean out your twister jar and make your cashew parmesan- 3/4 cup raw cashews, two tablespoons nutritional yeast,1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, and 3/4 teaspoon salt.
  4. Instructions; mix all ingredients into a food processor or small blender (like a twister Blendtec) and process until it's a little finer than cornmeal.
  5. Make your bread crumbs by toasting your four pieces of toast until crispy. Then crumble the pieces of toast on a baking sheet. Mix the crumbs with the oil and seasoning and bake in a preheated oven for 8 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  6. You can make a big salad by mixing your lettuce, vegan chicken strips, Caesar dressing, 1/4-1/2 cup cashew Parmesan, and bread crumbs. Then fill your Tortilla with the salad mixture and enjoy. Alternatively, you can make them up individually. I like to take a small bowl. Mix each portion and then add it in a wrap; that way, you can eat them as leftovers.
