Curry Mustard Dressing

Almond-Base | Cashew-Base | Dairy-Free | Dinner | Dressing+Dip | Gluten-free | Keto | Lunch | Oat-Powder | Recipe | Sugar-Free | Vegan | Vegetarian | 

Our Curry Mustard Dressing (a/k/a "Sunshine Dressing") is fresh, flavorful, and just the right blend of savory and sweet. Drizzle on top of a hearty entrée salad filled with nuts and seeds, use it as ‘glue’ for a hearty roasted veggie sandwich, or dip with grillables of your choice (we suggest portabella caps, eggplant steaks, or for you meat eaters, chicken breasts).

This recipe was originally published in the midst of the COVID lockdown.  We've retained segments of that blog:
We’re all doing our part to keep one another safe in the midst of COVID-19, which means patio season 2020 has a decidedly more hang-out-in-the-backyard vibe than years’ past. Lots of us are taking the extra time at home to hone our healthy cooking skills in between take-out meals from our favorite local spots. As spring truly arrives, we’ve got the perfect accompaniment to your next al fresco meal—Sunshine Dressing made with JOI cashew nutbase and our favorite Burlap & Barrel New Harvest Tumeric.

 Staying home isn’t bad, right?
