Creamy Cashew Dressing Recipe

When I design dairy-free dietary programs for clients, I often recommend eating small amounts of raw, organic cashews on a regular basis, as cashews are extremely dense in health-promoting nutrients, and their natural creaminess and sweetness make them an excellent substitute for many dairy-based foods and snacks.

The following creamy cashew dressing recipe creates a rich dressing or sauce that goes well with vegetable salads and pasta dishes. It's naturally abundant in healthy fatty acids, magnesium, and tryptophan, making it a healthy choice for your cardiovascular, nervous, and musculoskeletal systems.
