Prep Time 15 minutes
Servings 1 cup


  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoon avocado oil
  • ½ teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon table salt
  • teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon capers


  • In a small pot, bring about 3 cups of water to a boil.
  • Once boiling, add the cashews into a heat-resistant bowl (glass or ceramic are good options). Pour in enough of the boiling water to cover the cashews. Allow the cashews to soak in the water for 10 minutes.
  • Drain the water from the cashews, reserving the water.
  • Add all of the cashews and the rest of the ingredients into a food processor along with ½ cup of the reserved cashew water. Blend on high until completely smooth. Enjoy with a plant-based caesar salad!
