The Creamiest Cashew Dressing

This super quick recipe has been a long time coming. For my salads, I have been craving creamy dressings more and more and the first thing that came to mind is using cashew as a base. First of all, cashew has an inherently sweet taste but one can also achieve a really nice sweet and creamy dressing that can really hold a lot of flavour with cashews. This dressing is super easy, I feel like I say this a lot, but it is true and works very well as a salad dressing, even a creamy dipping sauce for fries or veggies or even on top of pizza. I know the pizza combo is weird but I had a creamy cashew cream on a simple margarita pizza at Planta (best vegan restaurant ever) and it was incredible. The next three recipes on my blog will utilize this dressing in different and tasty ways.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cashew soaked
  • 2/3 cup cold water
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1.5 tsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp of fresh parsley chopped (optional)
