Vegan Blue Cheese Dressing
As a vegan a good salad dressing is very important, this blue cheese salad dressing is the perfect blend of creamy and delicious. It is so easy to prepare in minutes.
I decided to use Brazil nuts, not only for flavor but for its amazing nutritional benefits.
Brazil nuts are high in selenium. One of the few good sources with such a high selenium content.
Selenium is beneficial for the improved immune system, cell growth, and thyroid function.

How To Make Vegan Blue Cheese Dressing?
Soak the nuts – Soak the Cashew and Brazil Nuts in cold water for at least an hour. It’s best to soak nuts if you are not using a high-speed blender.
Soaking nuts also neutralizes the phytic acid content and makes the nuts easier to digest. If you are using a high-speed blender, you don’t need to pre-soak your nuts for a creamy outcome.
Add Ingredients To The Blender– add water, nutritional yeast flakes, tahini, lime juice, onion powder, garlic powder, dill, basil, agave, and salt.
Blend Ingredients– process ingredients until smooth and creamy. Add extra water if salad dressing is too thick.
How Long Will Blue Cheese Salad Dressing Keep?
Your homemade salad dressing will last for 5-7 days in a container with a tight-fitting lid in the refrigerator.
Tips For Vegan Blue Cheese Dressing
- It is best to use a high-speed blender for a creamy salad dressing. If you have a standard blender, blend the recipe until it gets creamy, making sure to rest blender motor in between cycles.
- You can use Brazil nuts alone, cashews alone or a combination of both. Macadamia nut would also work.
- If you suffer from a nut allergy, substitute with sunflower seeds.
- Salad dressing will thicken in the refrigerator so you can add extra water to thin it out.
