Creamy Citrus Dressing

< 1 min read
Summary

The combination of cashews and the citrus is pretty magical. This dressing is a show-stopper on top of the 12-Ingredient Superfood Salad (see note), and it would also be delicious on top of steamed veggies, a grain bowl, in tacos, or on top of sweet potatoes. Make extra so you can enjoy it all week!

 ½ cup orange juice (freshly squeezed from one large or two medium organic navel oranges)
 2 tbsp organic orange zest (zest before juicing)
 1 medium lemon (juiced)
 1 tbsp organic apple cider vinegar
 1 tbsp tahini
 1 shallot (chopped)
 salt (optional)
 pepper (optional)

Chef's Notes

Substitutions
Navel oranges are in season, but if you can’t find them any juicy oranges will do!

Use green or yellow onion in place of the shallot.

Use extra orange juice in place of the lemon.

Prep Ahead
Make it ahead of time! Cream Citrus Dressing will keep for 5 to 7 days in a well-sealed container in the refrigerator.
