Cashew Salad Dressing

I've been trying to use less processed foods and make more from scratch these days. I tried my hand at homemade mayonnaise and it was less than successful! I'll try again, but in the meantime I'm sticking with the old tried and true! This is a ranch-type dressing that is delicious and has been well accepted in our household. It's great on a green salad...or as an addition to baked potatoes. I hope you like it too!

Cashew Salad Dressing

In a blender mix:

1/2 cup water or soy milk
1 cup raw cashew pieces, washed
3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 or 2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp. mineral salt
1/2 tsp. sweet basil flakes
1 Tbsp. celery flakes

Blend until smooth and creamy.

Can be used as a dip or dressing. For a thinner dressing, add more water. Dill may be added for additional flavor.


  1. I think your dressing really looks wonderful. I have never made mayo but remember Julia Child talked about that in the movie Julie and Julia.

  2. Sounds delicious!

  3. This sounds very good.
