This ranch dressing is so deliciously rich and creamy. There is no other way to describe it. I was really surprised at how intense the flavour is.
You can use this like you would any other ranch dressing: on salads, in sandwiches, wraps or on potatoes for potato salad.
Soaking the cashew nuts ensures that the cashews blend to a smooth texture.
