Makes approx. 3/4 cup

Prep Time: 5 minutes  Cook Time: 0 (need to soak chia seeds for 30 minutes)


1 Tbsp. white chia seeds

1/4 cup hot water

1/8  cup raw cashews

juice of 1/2  lemon

1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup brown rice vinegar

1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

1 tsp. capers

1/2 large Medjool date (optional)

1 small garlic clove, peeled



  • Soak chia seeds in hot water for approx. 30 minutes, until seeds have expanded.
  • Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender.
  • Start on low, then increase to high. Blend until smooth and creamy, approx. 1-2 minutes.
  • Place into a tight-fitting jar and store in the refrigerator.


Make sure to use a high quality white balsamic vinegar. It makes a huge difference.

If you don’t have a high-speed blender, you may need to soak cashews in water, to soften. You also may need to mince garlic.
