A few spoonfuls of this creamy spread instantly perks up any dish. It combines the richness of cashews, the pleasant heat of sriracha, and a touch of Asian-inspired flavors. Don't be intimidated by the ingredient list here, almost everything can be found in a stocked pantry. To break down the cashews into a velvety smooth consistency, I recommend using a food processor or a high-powered blender. This sauce makes a delicious salad dressing, sandwich spread, spicy mayonnaise replacer, or chip dip.

Shopping List
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked in hot water for 30 minutes
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha or preferred hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt, to taste

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Drain the cashews well. Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until very smooth. Add additional water, 1 teaspoon at a time, to reach desired consistency. 
  2. Serve: Enjoy. This sauce tastes amazing in Crunchy Banh Mi Salad.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Soaking the cashews helps them break down into a smoother sauce. Alternatively, you can use 1/4 cup of smooth cashew or almond butter to skip the soaking entirely. If using a nut butter, you also have the option to blend the dressing with an immersion blender or by hand, rather than with a food processor.
