Spiced Apple Cashew Dressing

Spiced Apple Cashew Dressing
I don’t know about you, but I love cashews. Ever since learning about how to make cashew cream from Tal Ronnen’s The Conscious Cook, I have been stuck on it. It’s great as a base for alfredo sauce or cream soups. It also adds a nice touch to some iced coffee and smoothies. So, I thought about trying it in a salad dressing.
I had an apple and a lemon. Somehow, the idea of a savory apple pie flavor came to mind. I put together this quick and easy recipe, which came out pretty darn nicely. The fresh apple gives the dressing a natural sweetness. The lemon is used for its preserving element for the apple. I also threw in some cinnamon and a touch of cumin, which brought some kick and Middle Eastern flavor. When I poured some over salad, the flavors reminded me of tabbouleh and all was well.
While I’m still tweaking this, I’d still thought I’d share what I have for this recipe so far with all of you.  Try it out and let me know your thoughts!
