This Jalapeño Ranch Dressing is made with cashews for a creamy smooth texture. It is vegan, plant-based, and oil free.
Soak the raw cashews for about 30 minutes. Drain and discard water.
Add all ingredients (except for dried cilantro) along with the soaked cashews to a high speed blender.
Blend for 2-3 minutes or until creamy and smooth
Add cilantro and slowly blend, until just incorporated.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Will thicken upon standing.
You MUST disclose that this recipe includes tree nuts if you serve to others. One wouldn't normally expect to find nuts in a ranch-type of dressing.
