Raw Ranch Dressing:

1 cup cashews

3/4-1 cup water

2T fresh lemon juice

1 clove garlic

1/4 cup chopped onion

1/2t garlic powder

1/2t onion powder

scant 3/4t sea salt

a few leaves fresh basil or 1t dried

1t dried dill ( I like to use fresh in the summer when I have it)

few sprinkles cayenne pepper, opt.

Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy. You'll have to determine the amount of water to use based on how thick or thin you like your dressing. This keeps in the refrigerator but will thicken up, so each time I use it, I add more water to thin it out.
