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.
- 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)
- Combine all the ingredients in a high speed blender and blend till very smooth
