'Creamy' Sweet Chilli Dressing

Sour cream, chives and sweet chili sauce are a tried and tested combination (granted they're usually on wedges) but I thought why not go for a 'creamy' dressing/sauce that uses the same delicious flavours but combines them in a way that can be used over salads or with a warm meal. This dressing is wonderfully rich and 'creamy' and packed with smoky, sweet flavour!

'Creamy' Sweet Chilli Dressing
Makes 4-6 serves

1 cup macadamia nuts (soaked in 1 cup of water overnight)
1/2 cup of sweet chili sauce
3 drops of liquid smoke
2 tbsp chopped chives
Salt to taste
1/4-1/2 cup water *optional

· Soak macadamias overnight (or for as long as convenient)
· Nuts, sweet chili sauce and liquid smoke to a high power blender
· Blend until smooth
· If desired add water as required for your purpose (leave it thicker for warm dishes and thinner for use over salads)
· Season to taste
· Chop chives
· Fold into dressing
· Enjoy over salad! (or with a warm meal)

I'd give this a try with baked potato, as a dressing for a potato salad or on a humble Green Salad, Kale Salad, or one of my fave salads:
