Creamy Cilantro Lime Dressing~a wonderfully smooth combination of flavors.
Cilantro + Lime = Foodie Love. I’ve talked before about how I had a long aversion to cilantro. It took long time, like 36 years, to give cilantro a chance. A real chance. I grew up around cilantro. My dad used it in his Mexican cuisine, but this formerly picky palate couldn’t get over its pervasive flavor. Then my friend introduced me to homemade taquitos, and soon after I read about cilantro and lime married together in a pesto. I have loved tradition basil pesto for twenty years, so the thought of cilantro and lime together in a pesto definitely intrigued me. I even made a special trip to the store to satisfy this curiosity, which if you know me, is NOT ME. I like to make my outings multi-purposeful (that doesn’t really sound like a word, but it passed spell check, and it’s how I wanted to say it). I’ll just say the extra outing was totally worth it!
This thick and creamy cilantro lime dressing makes a great dip for chips and veggies.
Using soaked cashews makes this cilantro lime dressing not only dreamy and creamy, but vegan as well. This cilantro lime dressing is so creamy, you would not suspect it was dairy-free at all! Who knew soaked cashews would be such a great substitute for creamy dairy products?
