Creamy Cashew Dressing

Add cashews to a small bowl and soak in water for at least 15 minutes.

Blend or process, until smooth, adding additional water as needed, until the mixture is the consistency of dressing.
Add the parsley and chives, along with pepper to taste, and refrigerate until using.

Variations:

Want it sweeter? Add a little raw honey or maple syrup.

Want a stronger ranch flavor? Add a little onion powder.
