Creamy Cashew Vinaigrette

Print

A few of the cookbooks that I have in heavy rotation feature oil-free, nut-based salad dressings, which inspired me to create one of my own. I love all things sour and tangy and I love the taste of the white balsamic. Not only do I use this as a salad dressing, I also use it as a dip for fresh veggies and as a tangy sauce on roasted veggies, baked potatoes, or sweet potatoes. It’s so good you’ll put it on everything!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This is a great, dairy-free alternative to the creamy dressings we know and love. Cashews provide that delicious texture, as well as a big dose of healthy fats. Additionally, garlic has long been purported to be an anti-cancer food. In fact, analysis of several European studies suggested there was an inverse relationship between garlic consumption and risk of common cancers, especially in digestive organs. The exact mechanism is unknown, however, garlic is thought to keep cancer-causing substances in your body from working, and prevents cancer cells from multiplying.
