Creamy Cashew Sauce or Vegan Mayo

I found this yummy recipe in the June/July 2011 issue of Kiwi Magazine.  It was presented as a potato salad, but I decided to pour the sauce over the potatoes for my husband and I and let the kids dip their potatoes in the sauce since they tend to not like a lot of sauce on their food.

Well I absolutely LOVED this sauce.  I will totally use it again and add dill as the recipe suggested to make a potato salad.  I didn't have dill on hand but I had everything else.  The result is a creamy, rich, delicious sauce that could also be used as a homemade vegan mayo! 

Creamy Cashew Sauce/Vegan Mayo

1 cup raw cashews
1 cup water
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp white vinegar
1 tbsp Chickpea Miso
1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 clove garlic, diced or crushed

1. Place the cashews in a bowl and cover with water. Let soak for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.  Or you can cheat on this step by placing them in hot water for 20's okay, I do it!

2. In a blender, preferably a Vitamix or Blendtec, add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
