This easy salad dressing recipe keeps well in the fridge for several days. Mint coconut salad dressing (or mint sauce) goes well with any green salad, especially when cucumbers are involved. It's also delicious over steamed veggies.

For a thicker dressing or sauce, use less coconut milk and more cashews or cashew butter. If you like a bit of heat, throw in a pinch of cayenne pepper and 1/2 tsp dry ginger or 1 tsp green curry paste.

To make this salad dressing or sauce recipe, a blender is ideal, or a food processor, or you could mince the mint and mix the sauce with a whisk. In that case, use cashew butter to thicken instead of soaked cashews.
