Spicy Cashew Ranch Dressing

This oil-free dressing is fantastic on a Mexican-style salad, burrito bowl, or as a dip. You can add a little more water (about 2 T) to thin the dressing out, if needed.

  • 1/8-1/4 t sea salt to taste
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/4-1/2 cup water to desired thickness

  • Cholula sauce or other red pepper sauce or 1/8 t of Chipotle pepper powder (add some drops to make the dressing spicier, if desired)
