Cashew Dill Dressing

  • 2 cups cashews, unsalted, raw
  • 1 bunch fresh dill
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 lime, freshly squeezed
  • 2-4 cups water
  • Sea salt to taste


  • 4 endives, cut in half
  • ½ cup grapes, rinsed and chopped
  • cup pistachios, unsalted, crushed
  • 2 Tbsp. grapeseed oil
  • Sea salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper



  • Make the dressing first. To start, soak the cashews overnight. Place them in a bowl, cover them with water, then drain thoroughly once you're ready to get started.
  • When ready to prepare, place strained cashews in a Vitamix blender or another powerful food processor.
  • Add water, a little at a time, and keep blending. Continue adding water and blending until the cashews reach a creamy consistency.
  • Add dill, garlic, lime juice, and salt. Blend well.
  • Can be made ahead of time. Dressing should last 3-5 days in the refrigerator.


  • Preheat oven to 375°F
  • Drizzle oil on endives; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Roast endives for 20-25 minutes, until edges are browned.
  • Plate with evenly distributed chopped grapes, pistachios, and dressing.
