I had missed creamy dressings very much, ranch especially. I’ve been playing with this recipe for a while and this time it turned out great. So if you’re missing ranch dressing, give it a try.
Raw Cashew Ranch Dressing (Dairy Free)
1/2 c. raw cashews
1/4 c. water
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp honey (use maple syrup for vegan)
1 Tbsp. onion-minced or 1 tsp. onion powder
1 clove garlic- minced or 1 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. dill or 1 tsp. dry dill
1 Tbsp. chives-chopped or 1 tsp. dry chives
Soak cashews in about a cup of water for a few hours or over night.
Then strain and rinse the cashews and place in magic bullet; add 1/4c water, vinegar, lemon juice, onion powder, and garlic. Puree. Put dressing into a bowl and add dill and chives, and stir.Add a little more water if it gets too thick. Will also work great as a dip. Will keep in refrigerator for about two days.
