Tzatziki, or dill-cucumber sauce, is the perfect companion to many delicious Greek dishes. This raw version uses nuts in place of the dairy to create a rich consistency and good flavor.
1 cup cashews, soaked 8 hours or overnight
1/2 cucumber or 1/2 cup juiced cucumber
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup fresh dill, chopped finely 1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped finely
1 clove garlic, minced
Pinch of sea salt and ground pepper
Process cashews and lemon juice in food processor to a paste. Add cucumber, dill, mint and garlic and process again until very smooth, adding water as necessary to make a creamy consistency. Stir in salt and pepper to taste.
