Jalapeno Cilantro Lime Cashew Cream

I don’t know about you but I love sauces and dips. Give me a chipotle aioli with my sweet potato fries, a sweet & sour sauce with my chicken fingers, or a creamy ranch for my veggies and salad. It really doesn’t matter what I’m dipping or drizzling as long as it’s tasty. This spicy jalapeño cilantro cashew cream is perfect for both dip lovers and dressing lovers alike. Serve it along side a veggie tray, pair it with cauliflower bites, or thin it out and drizzle it over a chopped salad. It’s versatile, yummy, and did I mention its dairy-free. I know. It checks all the boxes 🙂
