This jalapeno lime cashew sauce is a quick and easy recipe that serves as a dressing, sauce, and a dip.

Making cashew cream sauces are so easy and they’re incredibly versatile. If you like a little spice, you’re going to love this.

I wanted to kick my salads up a notch and as much as I love a regular cashew sour cream, I needed a little pizzaz.

I love the jalapeno and lime combination when it comes to homemade guacamole, so I figured why not make a jalapeno lime cashew sauce.

I used pickled jalapeños for this recipe. You can find these in your local grocery store, usually in the Mexican food aisle.

  • 1 cup raw cashews soaked overnight
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice fresh lime
  • 2 tablespoons pickled jalapenos
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
The night before
Soak the cashews overnight by putting the cashews in a bowl and covering them with water. Drain the next morning.
Making the sauce
If you forgot to soak the cashews, you can boil water and pour of the nuts to soak for 30 minutes. Drain.
Add all of the ingredients into the food processor or high speed blender. Start with 1/2 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and taste and adjust from there depending on how vinegary you want it to taste.
Blend until smooth, about 2-3 minutes. Store in a mason jar or a container with an air tight lid.
  • If you didn't soak the cashews over night, pour hot water over them and let them sit for at least 30 minutes.
