CASHEW RANCH DRESSING (with variations)

A dairy-free option of your favorite dressing with three variations! This recipe takes five minutes to make in a high-speed blender. I like to make a double batch on my weekly meal prep day ;) Vegan, gluten-free.


4 servings


Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews* (see notes)

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

  • 1 tsp dried chives

  • 1 tsp parsley

  • 1 medium garlic clove

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 1/4 tsp dijon mustard

  • 1/8 tsp dried dill

Method:

  1. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy, about 1-2 minutes.

  2. Store in an airtight container and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Give it a good stir just before serving.

  3. Store in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.


Note:

  1. Raw cashews may also be referred to as "unsalted, unroasted cashews”, depending on the brand.

  2. If you don’t have a high speed blender, soak cashews in hot water for 30 minutes prior to blending. Discard soaking water and proceed with recipe.


Variations:

  • Cilantro Ranch - add ½-1 cup fresh cilantro (leave and some stems) before blending.

  • Green Goddess Ranch - add ½ cup fresh basil + ½ cup fresh parsley before blending.

  • Dill Dip - Only add 6 Tbsp of water to recipe above. Stir in 2 Tbsp chopped fresh dill after blending (or 1 ½ tsp dried dill).
