White Peach Salad with Creamy Cashew Carrot-Ginger Dressing

Vegan White Peach Salad with Carrot Ginger Cashew Dressing
Ginger carrot dressing is one of my all time favorite salad toppers. I love when it is creamy and thick with a spicy-sweet flavor. So when I sliced up a few giant white peaches and was summer salad inspired, I knew I needed a ginger carrot dressing to complete my dish.

This Ginger Carrot Dressing is super rich and creamy from cashews. I also added in a hint of cayenne, turmeric, pepper, apple cider vinegar and optional nutritional yeast if you want a cheezy accent. (Yes, this Ginger-Carrot dressing could totally double as a quirky sweet-and-sassy vegan cheeze sauce if you add some nooch.)

Fresh summer peaches or nectarines are the perfect fruit for this dressing. Craving a heartier entree-approved salad? Add a generous dollop of hummus, some chickpeas, brown rice or even grilled tofu triangles or tempeh skewers! Summertime in a salad..
