Today I am making a quick and easy salad dressing. On a hot summer day, there is almost nothing that rivals a fresh green salad. And with this Creamy Italian Dressing, a simple salad becomes a delicious treat.
3/4 cup water
2/3 cup soaked cashews (cashews soaked overnight)
4 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
pinch of crushed red pepper
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2/3 cup olive oil
Blend water, cashews, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder, crushed red pepper, and salt, until smooth.
Once smooth, slowly add the olive oil while the blender is running on medium speed.
Add parsley, basil, and Italian seasoning and mix just until combined. (Note: If you blend too much, your dressing may turn green:)
