Creamy Pesto Dressing

Creamy Pesto Dressing

Not ready to let go of summer? Enjoy this pesto-flavored, rich, tangy, cheesy and creamy dressing that is so lively and delicious, plus it’s a snap to make. Due to the high starch of the cashews, this will thicken over time in the ‘fridge, so add a little water or non-dairy milk to thin it out if you don’t use it right away. (Or enjoy a nice, thick dressing.)
