Instructions Checklist
  • Place cashews in a bowl. Add hot water to cover; soak for 5 to 10 minutes. Drain and transfer to a blender.

  • Add 1/2 cup water, lemon juice, vinegar, and salt; blend until creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides every now and then. Stir in chives.

  • Serve right away or let chill in the refrigerator before serving.

Cook's Notes:

Soaking the cashews aids in digestion. You can soak them in cool water for 2 to 3 hours instead of soaking in hot water.

Use mineral salt if you can find it.

A small, de-seeded, minced jalapeno pepper can be stirred in instead of chives, if preferred.
