My mom has an immersion blender at home which makes it really easy to make dressings, smoothies, and even soups! If you don't have a Vitamix, this is a much cheaper option that will help you make many of my recipes. They are also very easy to clean up!
For lunch today, I made a big spinach salad with cilantro dressing. I got these orange cherry tomatoes at H-E-B because I love the color. I added chopped red onion, some dressing, and voilà!
1/4 cup cilantro
1/4 cup raw cashews (preferably soaked for 2 hours)
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
sprinkle of garlic powder
add water as needed for consistency
