Green Cashew Sauce

Green Cashew Sauce

Use this vegan green cashew sauce as a topping for power bowls, dressing for salads, or simply as a spread on a toast. It is an alternative to dairy-based sauces made with mayonnaise and yogurt. And the best part is: It takes less than 10 minutes to whip it all up.
