  • cup raw cashews
  • 2 Tablespoons barbecue sauce homemade or store-bought
  • 1 Tablespoon + 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons + 1 teaspoon honey*
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons water


  • Add cashews to a bowl and cover with water. Let cashews soak for 30 minutes. Drain water.
  • Add soaked cashews, BBQ sauce, dijon mustard, yellow mustard, honey, lemon juice, sea salt, pepper and water into a high-speed blender. Blend on high until creamy.
  • If the sauce seems too thick you can add more water, 1 Tablespoon at a time until the mixture is smooth and the consistency you like for your dipping sauce. Store leftover sauce in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 days. 


  • Use maple syrup instead of honey for a vegan version.
