This Vegan Italian Dressing is rich and creamy, yet oil-free! With cashews and just a handful of pantry ingredients, you can whip up this versatile plant-based dressing in minutes. Perfect for topping salads or roasted potatoes, or thicken it up for a decadent veggie dip.
This recipe makes about 1 cup of dressing, but you can easily double the recipe if you're serving a lot of people or want to use throughout the week.
I used a mix of Italian herbs that includes oregano, basil, marjoram, thyme, sage, and rosemary. If you have an Italian herb mix already, just use that. If not, use ½ tablespoon of each herb (or a mix of what you have at home).
For a more dip-like consistency, reduce water to ½ and adjust if necessary.
You can substitute granulated garlic for the garlic cloves, but the flavor will be less intense.
