It’s starting to feel like summer here in Montana, and I have been craving salads since I came home from Sweden. I had some chives growing in my garden and some extra cashews and coconut water left over from making the New York “Cheezecake” so I thought I would try making a creamy herb dressing for some salads this week. The finished product was similar to the ranch dressing you all loved as kids…and probably still love…come on don’t deny it!
1 cup cashews, macadamias, pinenuts or combination (soaked for 1 hour)
3/4 cup thai coconut water(or regular water if you dont have this)
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried dill
1 T fresh chopped chives
1/2 t sea salt
fresh cracked pepper
throw everything into your blender, and blend until smooth!
