This creamy dip provides layers of flavor to vegetables, slow roasted tomatoes, crackers, chips, steak bites, sliced sausage, and more. The dill has a bright, citrus flavor that enhances the nuttiness of the cashew purée. An essential dip for your next party or event, that so happens to be vegan and vegetarian friendly.
