Caesar Chavez Dressing
(adapted from Appetite for Reduction)
2 tbsps chopped shallot or green onion
2 tbsps cashew pieces, soaked in water for 1 hour or overnight *
1 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp miso
1/3 cup water
2 tbsps freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp capers with brine
1/8 tsp salt
freshly ground black pepper
Throw it all in a blender and blend for 5 minutes, scraping the sides down as necessary.
* soaking the cashews is really important because it softens them up and allows them to be blended into a smooth dressing without any graininess.
