VEGAN SALAD DRESSING: Creamy Cashew Cilantro!

April 23, 2012 LYT By:
LYT

We know how tempting store-bought creamy salad dressings can be but this vegan option helps to decrease inflammation and prevent illness! So, we hope you enjoy this savory vegan recipe which is a cinch to make and is super satiating!

 

 

Ingredients:

 

1.  Juice of 1 Lemon

2.  1/2 cup water 

3.  1/4 tsp Sea Salt

4.  1 – 2 bunches of cilantro

5.  1 cup of raw cashews 

***Use organic when possible! 

*** Makes approx. 1 1/2 cups. 


Preparation:

 

1.  Pour juice of 1 lemon into Vitamix or high speed blender and add the water

2.  Wash cilantro and place into Vitamix w/ all other ingredients

3.  Blend on HIGH until creamy

4.  Drizzle over your favorite green leaves such as a combo of Romaine lettuce and spinach with sliced red pepper!

 ***This is a rich dressing so use it sparingly. Store the remainder in the fridge.

FOOD COMBINING TIP:

Nuts don’t combine favorably with fats (avocado/coconut), starches or proteins, so this works well as a lunchtime salad alone or can be followed by cooked non-starchy vegetables.

 

Variations:

 

1. Add a large chunk of fresh ginger or a pinch of cayenne pepper to the blender for some spice!

2. Add a splash of Hawthorne Valley Hot Pepper Sauce to the blender for some spike!

3. Add a dash of cumin powder once served for an exotic twist and a dash of color!
