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.


2 cups raw, organic cashews
1-2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Sea salt, to taste
2 tablespoons chives or green onions (optional)


Blend all ingredients until you get a smooth and creamy sauce - start with just a 1/4 cup of water and add more as you blend until you reach a consistency that you like; for a thinner version that's good for salads, use more water; for a thicker version that's good for pasta dishes, use less water.

If you want to serve this delicious cashew sauce with an all-raw dish, make healthy pasta noodles out of zucchini.
