Creamy Cashew Herb Dressing

A creamy herb dressing perfect any time of year but especially when fresh herbs are in abundance! Works great as a dipping sauce too!
Course: Salad Dressing
Cuisine: Vegan, Gluten-Free
Author: Healthy Gluten-free Family


  • 1/3 cup raw cashews soaked in water for 1 hour
  • 1/2 cup EVOO extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat parsley leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill
  • 2 -4 tablespoons sherry vinegar to taste. I tend to start with 2 tablespoons and add more as needed. More makes it tangier.
  • 2 scallions chopped
  • 3-4 tablespoons water -- start with 3 and add more as needed.
  • pinch salt and pepper


  • Soak cashews in water for 1 hour, then drain
  • Add soaked and drained cashews plus all remaining ingredients to a small blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Add more water for a thinner dressing.
  • Dressing will thicken in the refrigerator but thin up when stirred and room temperature
