Spicy Cashew Dressing

Spicy Cashew Dressing

Yessa hunted up this delicious recipe for our big dinner of salads with all the assorted mix-ins.

It's shared from the restaurant "Sweet Green" which often enjoy when we visit the Virginia Families.

How to Make 1 Cup of Sweetgreen's Spicy Cashew Salad Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons garlic
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup young ginger
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon red chili flakes
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons cashew butter
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Water

Blend it all together, and you're done!

Yessa had a few alterations; Sub garlic and ginger for their dried counterparts and sub cashew butter for cashews and sub chili flakes for gochujang. And no cilantro, of course.

Yessa is a cilantro-avoider, but I say add as much of it as you have.

It was delicious and will be part of the rotation.

A delicious salad meal.
