Recipe by Kozmic Blues
Quick, simple, and easy to prepare. This is a great dish to bring to a potluck or cookout. It vanishes every time! I recommend tossing the dressing and ingredients with the lettuce and spinach right before serving.

First salad I have given 5 stars! I really enjoyed this combination, and the dressing was very complimentary. Typically I end up not even useing the dressing given in a recipe with a salad. I usually hate "oily vinegrettes" but this one was lovely! Sweet with a nice tang. Since there are only two of us I simply used a bag of mixed feild greens and divided up the ingredients into two salad bowls (eyeballing the ammounts) and served the dressing on the side (halved the recipe). All I had on hand were raw cachews so I toasted them a little and all was well. I would make this again!
- 1 head lettuce (I have used iceburg, romaine or those prepackaged bags of mixtures)
