Whether you’re craving a crispy coleslaw or hearty pasta salad, there’s always an occasion that calls for a creamy salad dressing. But let’s face it, store-bought varieties are often ridden with calories, hidden sugar, saturated fat, artificial flavours and preservatives. Not to mention, they are rarely vegan.
That’s when a little finesse in the kitchen can make adjusting to a vegan lifestyle a thousand times easier — and mastering this creamy vegan salad dressing is one recipe you’ll want in your repertoire.
It’s fresh, flavourful, and so simple. There’s no soaking, grinding or blending cashews. You simply throw all the ingredients in a jar and shake vigorously. You’re left with a silky-smooth salad dressing that’s low in calories, rich in healthy fats, vitamin E, calcium and protein.
Plus, it’s easily adapted to accompany any salad. We love it with a touch of lemon drizzled over sliced heirloom tomatoes, mixed with fresh minced garlic on fragrant basil and white beans, or slightly sweetened with honey on crisp arugula and roasted cauliflower.
