This cashew-based dressing is creamy but so refreshing! This is a very cooling dip or topping that could be brilliantly paired with spicy foods. What you do with this dressing is entirely up to you. Try it on salads, in wraps, and over cooked veggies (and pizza, of course).

Interesting, innovative dishes that will win over even the pickiest eaters. As a relatively new vegan, I love the challenge of creating interesting, exciting dishes that even the staunchest meat eaters will like. I moved from Arizona to Leicester, England several years ago and created Thevegantwist.com to provide some interesting vegan recipes and highlight vegan-friendly restaurants along the way. I hope to make it easier for local vegans like me and hopefully inspire others to give veganism a go!
