I created this for my cousin who cannot eat (drum roll) dairy, soy, eggs, peanuts, or yeast. She wanted a creamy salad dressing, and after looking at others for inspiration, this is what we came up with. It is really nice, reminiscent of hummus, and pretty darn healthy! Please send notes and improvements!

Cook's Note:

We use lime juice, though I imagine lemon juice would work very well too.
