There are so many holiday gatherings this time of year! You should always bring something to add to the party, but especially if you have issues with food. I get tired of bringing the same thing everywhere.

Raw Cashew Pepper Dip

So I am always looking for a new and delicious dip to go with my veggies and crackers. I really enjoy mixing veggies with cashews to come up with great new flavours. Let’s face it, when you don’t have food issues you get to try all these amazing new flavour combinations whenever you’d like. Why shouldn’t we be able to have amazing new flavours as well!

This dip is a fantastic addition to your holiday spread!

Raw Cashew Pepper Dip

Raw Cashew Pepper Dip  (Paleo/ Vegan/ Dairy Free/ Gluten Free/ Nut Free Option)

1 c. raw cashews (if you can not have cashews then sub in goat cheese)

1 c. sweet red pepper-chopped (or colour of choice)

1/2 c. red onion- chopped (or desired onion)

2 Tbsp. raw apple cider vinegar or lemon juice

1 Tbsp. maple syrup-optional (honey can be used if not vegan)**

1/4-1/3 c. water

Sea salt and pepper to taste

Soak cashews in 2 cups of water for at least 3-4 hours.

Rinse cashews thoroughly. Place all the ingredients into a strong blender.

Raw Cashew Pepper Dip

Pulse until everything is smooth, scraping down the sides. Keep covered for up to one week in the fridge. Thickens a bit as it sits.Goes great as a dip for veggies or crackers.

**If you’d like a slight bit to this dip then just leave out the maple syrup.

  1. Hey Sandi,
    I don’t have any food allergies but one of my nephew is coeliac. So I am always on the look-out for GF recipes. The onions that you mention, are you using them raw? Is there a way to cut-out the raw onion breath since I would love to serve it in a party. Keep me posted.
    Thank you for sharing on Savoring Saturdays.

    • Hi Shreyashi, Yes they are raw but you won’t get onion breath if you use the maple syrup. The sweetness much cut the onion. I hope you enjoy it! Everyone loves it where I have taken it.

  2. That totally looks like something my kids would love. They’re all about dipping everything in something. Haha! Thanks so much for sharing this at Savoring Saturdays, Sandi! We’re getting the party started back up this weekend – I hope to see you there! 🙂

    • We’ve got to have something to dip things into!! Haha
      Thanks Raia! See you there!
