Cashew Crunch Salad
I’m not a huge salad fan , but when I do find one I like …I LOVE IT . This is one of those, I love the dressing and the “crunch”. It is literally so crunchy Mark and I couldn’t even talk at dinner because our crunching was so loud.
*I added grilled chicken, everything else I followed exactly!
Also , if you buy pre shredded everything , it comes together to quick !
I found the recipe here ! https://pinchofyum.com/cashew-crunch-salad-with-sesame-dressing
For the Salad:
1/2 head of green cabbage, finely shredded
1/2 head of purple cabbage, finely shredded
2 cups carrots, matchstick-cut or shredded
1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup sliced green onion
2 cups cooked edamame (see notes)
1–2 cup roasted cashews (see notes)
2 cups crunchy chow mein noodles (optional)
chicken, shrimp, or any other protein you like
1/4 cup olive oil (you can use any other oil as well)
3 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons sesame oil – very important for flavor!
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
a few shakes of garlic powder
optional: 1/4 cup Greek yogurt or mayo (more or less to taste)
Shake the dressing ingredients up in a jar until smooth. Add the Greek yogurt or mayo (optional – just makes it more creamy) and shake again until smooth. YUM.
Toss all the salad ingredients together. Drizzle with dressing and serve!
