Creamy Pesto Viniagrette

Pesto and salads go hand in hand. The first time we made this dressing we devoured it. Not only did we put it on our salad (ok, you got us....we didn't just drizzle it on, we dumped it.) but we also dipped our pizza crusts in it. Now we always double the recipe, just in case.

What you'll need:

2/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup cashews
1/3 white balsamic vinegar
1 - 1 1/2 cup basil
1 clove garlic
pinch of sea salt
pinch of pepper

Blend ingredients in Vitamix or food processor until smooth. Pour (or dump) over salad and enjoy!


  1. I think I'd dump it on my salad too!! Question - are you using unsalted cashews or salted and roasted?

  2. We use raw cashews which are obviously unsalted.
