Creamy Dijon Cashew Dressing

  • Author: Allie
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cup 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


This dijon cashew dressing only uses 6 simple ingredients and is ready in 5 minutes (depending on your blender).


  • ½ cup raw cashews (soaked and drained)
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Blend everything in a blender until smooth.
  2. Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator for a week.


Soak cashews overnight or use a quick soak method.  Boil enough water to cover the cashews, then pour over the cashews and soak them in a heat-proof container for 15-20 minutes.

If it has thickened too much once chilled in the fridge, thin it out with a little bit of water (as needed).

Add more water if you prefer a thinner dressing.
