    Directions

    1. To make the dressing, pour all of the ingredients (filtered water, olive oil, drained cashews, lemon juice, Dijon, whole-grain mustard, apple cider vinegar, coconut sugar, garlic powder, onion powder and sea salt) into your KitchenAid® blender and puree on high for 30 to 60 seconds until the ingredients are pulverized and the mixture is emulsified.
    2. In a large salad bowl, toss the salad ingredients (pasta, diced bell peppers, diced celery, diced red onion, flat-leaf parsley) together. Pour the dressing over the salad, and toss so that the ingredients are evenly coated. Season with salt to taste.
    3. Chill in the fridge for a few hours to allow the flavors to mesh, and serve.
