If your cashew butter is refrigerated, heat it in the microwave for 10 seconds to soften it.
Use a whisk, blender or
to mix this dressing. Cashew butter can sometimes be grainy and the blender or immersion blender will work best to make it super smooth.
Place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl or blender and mix until smooth.
Taste. Feel free to add more vinegar if you prefer it more sour, more sweetener, coconut aminos for more salty flavor or more chile flakes/hot sauce for more kick.
Store this dressing in the refrigerator and it will stay fresh for several weeks (less time if lime juice is used). It it gets to stiff, heat
(10-15 seconds) in the microwave and stir.
*Coconut aminos is similar to soy sauce but milder in flavor and less salty.
