CREAMY CASHEW AND CILANTRO SALAD DRESSING
A thick, creamy light green salad dressing designed for people on acid-free diets (no vinegar or lemon). Flavored with fresh cilantro!
Makes 1-1/4 cups
1/2 c. corn oil
1/4 c. whole salted cashews
1/4 c. water
1/4 c. frozen petite peas
1/4 c. fresh cilantro leaves
salt to taste
Combine corn oil and cashews in blender container. Blend on low speed till crushed. Add water, and blend on medium speed till creamy.
Add peas, cilantro and salt; blend again till smooth and creamy. Adjust for salt, cover and refrigerate till chilled.
Drizzle 1-3 tablespoons over fresh greens and vegetables of your choice.
Notes: Salad suggestion: crisped torn romaine lettuce topped with thawed frozen peas, sweet onion rings and sauteed fresh cubed mushrooms, in that order. Spoon dressing over, then if desired, top with homemade croutons.
