Method
Step 1
Place the cashews into a small bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave to soak for at least 10 minutes, or until they soften.
Step 2
After 10 minutes, drain the cashews and place into a powerful blender or food processor with the rest of the dressing ingredients. Blend until the mixture comes together to create a smooth, thick dressing – you can add a dash more almond milk if needed until the mixture comes together.
Step 3
Spoon the chopped kale (or lettuce) into a large bowl and pour in the dressing. Mix well until the kale leaves soften a little and everything is coated in the dressing
Step 4
Add the avocado chunks and drained chickpeas and mix everything together.
Step 5
Spoon the salad onto a large mixing bowl and top with some more parmesan and pepper.
