Dressing
  1. Add cashews to a bowl and cover with boiling hot water. Let set, uncovered, for 2 hours. Rinse with cold water and drain thoroughly.
  2. Blend all of the ingredients (except the cucumber and dill) together in a high-speed blender, scraping down the sides as necessary. You will want it to be thick and creamy throughout.
  3. Add cucumber and blend until completely incorporated.
  4. Stir in fresh dill. Taste for salt and pepper seasoning. Transfer to the refrigerator to thicken up more. If you have time to let it sit overnight, that’s best!
Salad
  1. Combine all of the salad ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Add Whole30 tzatziki dressing, to taste. You will most likely have plenty of dressing leftover.
  3. Serve right away and garnish with extra capers and fresh dill if desired.
Recipe Notes
