Spring Salad Series: Vegan Ranch Dressing

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.

1 cup water

1-2 garlic cloves

1/4 medium white onion

1 tbsp lemon juice

pinch black pepper

Soak the cashew nuts in water for 1-3 hours. Drain off the water place the nuts in a blender. add all the remaining ingredients including the cup of cold water and blend the mixture until smooth. Taste the cream for any additional seasoning. Add a chopped parsley to the mixture if you wish. Store in a container in the fridge for 2-3 days.
