Tricolore Salad with Creamy Italian Dressing

IMG_5211

An easy Friday recipe. Tricolore salad is called “tricolore” because the green of the arugula, the white of the endive, and the red of the radicchio make up the colors of the Italian flag. I love a creamy dressing so I dressed this salad with my version of Creamy Italian. I got a big smile from my husband with this one. It’s the red wine vinegar that really does the trick.

Creamy Italian Dressing
1 cup raw cashews *
1 cup filtered water
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 clove fresh garlic
A few shakes of dried parsley
A few shakes of dried oregano

* If you don’t have a Vitamix, soak the cashews for 4 hours.

Place everything into the Vitamix and let it rip. It’s done when the dressing is smoooooooth! Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
