This dressing tastes so rich and creamy, you won’t believe it’s dairy free. Serve with The Wedge, or as a dip with crudités.

Yield: 1 cup, 8 servings

  • 1 cup soaked raw cashews
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil, or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill weed, or 1 teaspoon dried


Equipment

  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • citrus juicer or reamer
  • cutting board
  • chef’s knife, 8-inch
  • blender
  • rubber spatula


Place the cashews, water, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt in a blender and process until smooth and creamy. Add the basil and dill weed and pulse briefly, just to mix. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, Ranch Dressing will keep for five days.

Too much dill (used dry measurements). Not enough onion, garlic, salt, or pepper.

Should one use the cashew soak water in the dressing, or drain it and use fresh, filtered water?  Thanks.
