  • 1/3 cup cashews (soaked overnight)

  • 1 TBS maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 cup water

  1. In a blender, blend cashews, lemon juice, garlic, tahini, maple syrup, sea salt, and water until smooth.

  4. Let dressing sit for 15 minutes to let flavors meld together. Tastes amazing in Veggie-full Quinoa Salad. 


– Keeps in fridge for 5 days.

If you don’t have soaked cashews, speed up the process by boiling them for 10 minutes to soften.

– For a thinner salad dressing, add an extra teaspoon of water at a time to final product and mix.

– To make nut free, omit cashews, and adjust recipe by using 1/2 cup of tahini, 1 finely minced garlic clove, 1/4 cup of water (tad less for thicker product), along with remaining recipe ingredients. Mix in jar, instead of blender.
