My Favorite Emerald Green Dressing

*This is my all-time favorite dressing for salads and raw veggies!  The recipe is really 'too modern' for my 8th grade home ec class, but the pea salad on lettuce leaves that we learned to make in that class does remind me of emeralds!

1 cup water
1 cup cashews (rinsed)**
2 Tbsp. chives
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. Italian dressing
1/2 Tbsp. parsley (dried) or doubled fresh
3/4 cup pineapple juice concentrate
1 lemon, juiced
stevia, fructose, or maple syrup to taste

Blend all ingredients together in blender until smooth and creamy. Adjust seasonings to taste.

*I usually substitute cilantro (fresh coriander) for the parsley and add the entire bunch! I love cilantro and it makes such a beautiful green color and fresh flavor!

**Brazil nuts work fine as a substitute for cashews in this recipe.
