Lemon. Yes. Dill. Yes. Marry these flavors and you’ve got a yummy dressing/sauce match made in heaven! Toss it around your salads or pour it over steamed veggies. This dressing is so good, it will even kick up a plain baked potato!

Total time: 1-2 minutes

Makes a large one cup.


  • 1/2 cup soaked cashews
  • 1/2 cup cooked cannellini beans or other white bean
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon (about 1 teaspoon)
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • water as needed
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 2 medium lemons)
  • 2 Tbls. finely chopped fresh dill or 3 Tbls. dried dill (I use a combo)
  • 1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. maple syrup
  • Freshly ground black pepper and salt to taste


  1. Add all ingredients to a high powered blender and blend for at least 1 minute.
  2. Add small amounts of water to reach the desired consistency for either a salad dressing or leave thicker to use as a sauce.

Note: The dressing will naturally thicken up in the fridge, so you can add some water or more vinegar before using.

    Gotta admit I’m a little addicted to this-it is SO GOOD! I’ve been putting it on pasta, on salads, on asparagus (to die for!) and last night over a bunch of grilled veggies. It is DELICIOUS-so refreshing and brightens up any dish. Thank you!
