18 Jul Cashew-Dill Dipping Sauce
This cashew-dill dipping sauce is a perfect compliment to so many dishes. It can be used as a salad dressing, dip for veggies, pizza, or cauliflower wings, as a cheese spread, or pasta sauce. The options are endless!
Did you know? Cashews grow on trees. The cashew nut grows from the bottom of the cashew apple fruit. The shells are poisonous which is why they come de-shelled.
Although the shell may be harmful to us, the cashew nuts are packed with vitamins E, K, and B6, as well as minerals including zinc, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, selenium, and more. Cashews help to maintain bone health and boost immune system function.
Dill helps to maintain balance through the body, mind, and spirit by allowing you to see through an objective perspective. Physically, it helps to reduce menstrual cramps, reduce depression, lower cholesterol, and aid in digestion.
This dipping sauce comes together in less than 10 minutes and requires just 7 simple ingredients.
All you need to do is place all of your ingredients into a high powered blender, blend, and serve.
