Not only are macadamia nuts a good source of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, but when they're pureed, they also serve as an ingeniously creamy base for dairy-free salad dressings.

Dressing

  1. 1/4 cup macadamia nuts
  2. 1 tablespoon water
  3. 1/4 teaspoon lime zest
  4. 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  5. 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  6. Pinch of salt
  7. Pinch of cayenne pepper

Salad

  1. 1/2 cup diced peeled jicama
  2. 1/2 cup diced fennel
  3. 1/2 cup diced peeled raw beets
  4. 1/4 cup chopped Belgian endive
  5. 4 cherry tomatoes, chopped
  6. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. MAKE THE SALAD In a food processor, finely grind the macadamias. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until creamy; add more water, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, to thin out as desired.
  2. Transfer the dressing to a bowl. Add the vegetables and season with salt and pepper. Toss well and serve.
