Marriage Proposal Cilantro-Tamarind Dipping Sauce
My girlfriend swears that her fiance asked her to marry him because of this sauce. Maybe you will have similar results, maybe not, but I guarantee that you will find this sauce unbelievably tasty!
We use it for everything – as a dip, a dressing, a pasta sauce, etc. But our favorite way to use it is as a sauce for salad rolls – use a lettuce wrapper, and load up the ripe avocado, sliced red peppers, julienned carrots, sundried tomatoes, red onion, sprouts, etc., then slather on a generous portion of this sauce, roll it all up and serve.
This sauce keeps well for about a week, so you can easily double or triple the recipe if you find you like it.
2 tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice)
2 tablespoon tamarind pulp, soaked and pits removed
½ cup raw honey
¼ cup olive oil
½ cup raw cashews
.66 cup fresh cilantro
2 clove garlic, peeled
2 green onions or scallions
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1 pinch tumeric
Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until combined. Keep refrigerated.
