Paleo-fied \”Cheese\” Ball Dip

1. Soak cashews in a bowl of water for 4-8 hours, changing the water at least once. Rinse well but do not dry.

2. Place cashews, vinegar and 1/4 cup warm water in blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy, adding water slowly as necessary to get to desired consistency.

3. Place cashew mixture in bowl and add remaining ingredients, tasting to check for seasoning.

4. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving to let it firm up and the flavors meld. Serve with vegetables, paleo crackers and/or paleo bread (I didn\’t care for the crackers pictured, so I\’m trying a couple more recipes from here on FastPaleo).

I am a wife, mother to four young children and a college student. Like most families these days, our household is ridiculously crazy, even on our best days. While I am the first to admit it can get overwhelming at times, I do very much enjoy making sure we eat nourishing meals and snacks on a daily basis.
