How to Make
Making this cashew dill dressing is super quick and easy! You just need to blend everything in a blender until smooth.
However, you may have to soak your cashews before blending if you do not have a high-powered blender. I have a Vitamix that blends raw, unsoaked cashews into a creamy dressing with no issue, but some blenders might not be able to do this.
To soften your cashews, soak them for at least 4 hours at room temperature, or for a faster method you can soak them in boiled water. To do this, just boil some water on the stove or in an electric kettle, then pour it over the cashews in a bowl, making sure the water covers them completely. Then just place an upside down plate over the bowl to trap the heat and let it sit for at least 20 minutes.
This vegan dill dressing is great in the following ways:
- As a dressing for a leafy green salad
- As a dressing for a potato salad
- As a dressing for a macaroni salad
- As a dip for raw veggies
- As a dip for tortilla chips
