- Peel and grate the cucumber and chop the mint. Squeeze the grated cucumber to remove excess water. You can squeeze it with your hands or with a paper towel or dish towel. Set aside.
- Place the cashews, water, dill, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic into your blender and blend until smooth.
- Add in grated cucumber and chopped mint and lightly pulse the blender until the cucumber and mint are mixed in but remain chunky.
- Add sea salt and black pepper to taste.
- Pour out into a serving bowl and top with some dried dill, grated cucumber and fresh mint.
*It’s not needed to soak your cashews first unless you know your blender will have a hard time with them. If you need to soak them first, then place into a bowl and pour boiling water over the top and let them soak for 5-10 minutes just to soften up a bit and make them easier to blend.
*Keep leftovers stored in the fridge where they will last for around 5 days. Separation may occur, but this is normal, just stir it. It’s not suitable for freezing.
