tomaat, avocado en basilicum sausAvocados and tomato salad with cashew nut-basil dressing

This is a delicious summery side dish or salad (also great on its own with some fresh bread)





  • Tomatoes
  • Avocado
  • Fresh basil leaves (one cup of loosely added whole leaves)
  • Garlic (one large or 2 small cloves)
  • Cashew nuts (about half a cup of cashew nuts (certainly not more), you can use either raw or toasted)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Olive oil

Put the cashew nuts, the garlic, basil leaves and a good splash of olive oil in a blender and mix till a smooth paste. If the paste is too thick you can add more olive oil.

(tip: if you are going to eat this dish with fresh bread it is nice to add some more olive oil so you can soak up the dressing with the bread!)
