Cashew Vinaigrette Dressing

For our cashew cooking party, our friend Brandon brought in this easy dressing recipe from his mother and grandmother. The original recipe is drizzled on broccoli and since Brandon's enemy is broccoli, he's decided to serve this on top of romaine lettuce. Either way, the salad comes out quite delicious and fun to eat.
