Finally a raw vegan ranch dressing you can soak up your veggies and salads in. Cashews make this base creamy and rich.

Yield: 1 1/2 cups


  • ¾ cup cashews, soaked for at least two hours
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar (a little more if you like it more tart)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼-½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. dried thyme
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • *1 clove garlic
  • *½ tsp onion powder
  • 3 tbsp fresh dill
  • 3 tbsp fresh parsley


Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender – OR blend all ingredients except for the oil in a food processor, and drizzle the oil in until the mixture is creamy and emulsified.

When dressing is blended, chop an additional few tablespoons of herbs and mix them in. Enjoy on top of a big green salad.
