Vegan Salad Dressing Vinegar-Free

Dear Reader, I would like you to meet Mr. Cashew E. Dressing. He’s a super great guy and I know you are going to absolutely love him!

What does the E in his name stand for? Easy. That’s his middle name. Easy.

5 minutes, start to finish. Boom. You are done.

Easy peasy. 

(And kid-friendly too!)

A Healthier Salad Dressing

Not only is this dressing easy, but it’s your ticket to healthier meals – complete without the complimentary preservatives, additives, vinegar, GMO’s, sugar, oil, EDTA, and monoalginatediglyceridedisodium found in its refined, processed, grocery-store cousin. (Okay, I made that last one up, but it’s not too far off!)

I mean when you eat a salad, you kinda are expecting it to be good for you. But put that grocery-store dressing on it and all the health benefits just flew out the window.

Simple, healthy ingredients. That’s what we want.

And this salad dressing delivers.

How to Serve Creamy Cashew Salad Dressing

This vinegar-free vegan salad dressing is remarkably versatile. It tastes great not only on salads, but it also makes a fabulous sandwich spread. We often use it in place of mayo. We also like it drizzled (okay, poured) over vegetables. It can make any yucky veggie taste great! And it’s wonderful on these Beet Burgers.

How to Store this Healthy Vinegar-Free Vegan Salad Dressing

Because this dressing doesn’t contain any preservatives, it doesn’t keep as long as commercial dressings. In the refrigerator, it will keep for about 5 days. For longer storage, you can freeze it. However, it separates, so be sure to stir it well after thawing.
