- 1 cup raw cashews
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice (squeezed fresh with our handheld citrus juicer)
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ cup water
- ¼ cup parsley, chopped
- 1 small bunch chives, chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
- black pepper powder to taste
Add cashews to a small bowl and soak in water for at least 15 minutes. (This will allow the cashews to soften and make them easier to process.) Drain cashews of the water and add to a blender or food processor, along with garlic powder, lemon juice, salt, and ¼ cup of water. Blend or process, until smooth, adding additional water as needed, until the mixture is the consistency of dressing.
Add the parsley and chives, along with pepper to taste, and refrigerate until using.
Want it sweeter? Add a little raw honey or maple syrup.
