Soaking aids in digestion and is worth the time. You won’t kill the recipe if you don’t, but it’s good for your health. Take the first two cups of nuts listed in the recipe and put them in a food processor. Pulse until they are chopped into smaller pieces, but don’t do it too long or it will turn to a paste. Then set aside.
For the dressing, put all the ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. For this you not only want to speak the cashews for health reasons, but it will make the dressing smoother and easier to blend.
Combine the nut mixture with the dressing and serve in a romaine wrap, or on gluten-free bread, or raw crackers. There are many options here.
